Macy), a hapless car salesman so deep in debt, he hires two thugs (Steve Buscemi, Peter Stormare) to kidnap his wife. But he doesn't bargain for Police Chief Marge Gunderson (Frances McDormand), heavily pregnant and determined to solve the crime. You betcha, yaah.

A Serious Man
Academy Award-winning directors Joen and Ethan Coen return to their comedy roots with this original and darkly humerous story about one ordinary man's quest to become a serious man.

Someone is threatening his career. His kids are a mystery, and his neighbour is tormenting him by sunbathing nude. Struggling to make sense of it all, Larry consults three different rabbis and their answers lead him on a twisted journey of faith, family delinquent behaviour and mortality.
