ACADEMY Award-winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen bring their famously wicked sense of humour to an everyday tale about a moral man who sees the world inexplicably turn against him.

Larry Nidus is a good man. He is a loving husband, a committed father, and a dedicated professor who always does the fair and just thing in the face of daily temptations.

But one day, everything starts to go wrong. His wife leaves him for reasons she can't explain, and her smug new lover manages to convince Larry that he should be the one to move out of the house and into a cheap motel - all for the children's benefit, of course.

Then Larry's career is put into jeopardy by a series of anonymous letters falsely accusing him of unnamed treacheries. And when his wife's new partner dies in a car accident, Larry finds himself paying to bury a man he hates.

Michael Stuhlbarg stars in A SERIOUS MAN (15).
