Why So Serious?

The Coen Brothers' most recent effort, A Serious Man provides the lush environment of 1960s small town America. The story is dark and humorous. Loosely based around the famous Bible story of the Book of Job, the film takes a hard look into the life of a Jewish family and their surrounding community. It is more of a story of staying true to ones character, no matter how absurd the circumstances; it also allows the viewer to live and understand the social complexities of what it felt like to be Jewish in a small town.
Here's the trailer of A Serious Man below:
