A Serious Man (2009)

Written By Awir Aditya on Monday, March 8, 2010 | 8:46 AM

Genre: Drama/Comedy

Starring: Michael Stuhlbarg, Richard Kind, Fred Melamed, Sari Lennick, Aaron Wolff, Jessica McManus

Set in the 1970's, simpleton Prof. Lawrence Gopnik (Stuhlbarg) is a Jewish man living in America. He can easily get lost in the crowd of average people and he likes it that way. His average life gets disrupted when his wife Judith (Lennick) wants to divorce him to marry Sy Ableman (Melamed) one of Lawrence's acquaintance. One of Lawrence's students bribes him to pass him in his exam and on Larry's refusal he threatens to disrupt his career. Lawrence's brother Arthur (Kind) is staying with him and is proving to be a burden to the family. Lawrence's son Danny (Wolff) is secretly purchasing gramophone records without his knowledge which are costing him a bomb. These are just a few things that haunt Lawrence's life which make it anything close to being average. The movie is a regular life and lies of an American immigrant. The Jewish aspect might be a nice addition but wasn't played into very deep. It has a very ambiguous end and the movie on a whole is nothing really entertaining. Watchable, but yet avoidable.

Thumbs up: Michael Stuhlbarg
Thumbs down: Boring plot

Rating: 6.2/10
