April 17 - Movie night: A Serious Man

Our monthly movie night in Brooklyn: A Serious Man, directed and pro­duced by Joel and Ethan Coen (2009)

1967. Larry Gopnik, a Jewish col­lege pro­fessor of math­e­matics, lives with his family in the sub­urbs of Minneapolis. Problems accu­mu­late on his shoul­ders: his wife asking for a divorce, his brother living in seclu­sion, his ever dis­tant son, his own pupils dif­faming him... Somewhere between Kafka and the Monty Python, A Serious Man fol­lows Larry’s quest for truth as he goes from Rabbi to Rabbi in search of answers. "Why does God give us the ques­tions if he does not want to give us the answer ?" In their own, inim­itable way, the Coen Brothers address the Big Question with humor and ten­der­ness. They teach us that real seri­ous­ness is to patiently address one’s heart’s yearning for truth... no matter how absurd reality may seem !

A dis­cus­sion will follow the screening.
