A SE­RI­OUS MAN (2009) 7TWO, 11.40PM, M, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Af­ter clean­ing up at the 2007 Acad­emy Awards with No Coun­try­forOldMen, Joel and Ethan Coen earned the right to do as they pleased. With no real head­lin­ing stars, themes deeply rooted in Jewish iden­tity and a set­ting in­tended to evoke the broth­ers’ own up­bring­ing, it tells the story of hap­less physi­cist Larry Gop­nick (Michael Stuhlbarg) whose search for life’s an­swers puts him through a se­ries of tri­als that send his life into chaos. Bleakly en­ter­tain­ing but in that sig­na­ture Coen style. ★★★★
