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.
Physics professor Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg) can't believe his life: His wife is leaving him for his best friend. His unemployed brother won't move off the couch. 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 in the film critics rave is "seriously awesome!" (Vanity Fair)
