After Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg) has a nightmare that his ex-wife’s lover, Sy Ableman (Fred Melamed), crashes his lecture about the uncertainty principle, Larry proceeds with his day by introducing himself to the new neighbors where he is met with a pleasant surprise.
Academy Award®-winning directors Joel and Ethan Coen return to their comedy roots with this original and darkly humorous story about one ordinary man’s quest to become a serious man. Physics professor Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg) can’t believe his life: His wife is leaving him for his best friend, his unemployed brother won’t move off the couch, someone is threatening his career, his kids are a mystery and his neighbor is tormenting him by sunbathing nude. Struggling to make sense of it all, Larry consults three different rabbis and their answers lead him on a twisted journey of faith, family, delinquent behavior and mortality in the film critics rave is “seriously awesome!” (Michael Hogan, Vanity Fair)
