This latest film from the Coen brothers arsenal follows university professor Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg) as his life is falling into pieces — his wife leaves him, his children are delinquents, and someone is threatening his tenure at work. While the plot of A Serious Man may sound on the depressing side, count on the Coens to mix in plenty of dark humor. Bonus: Richard Kind (loved him in his Spin City days!) plays Gopnick's menacing brother. The film hits theaters October 2, but it in the meantime, check out the trailer.
