Renowned Academy Award®-winning directors the Coen brothers (Burn After Reading; No Country For Old Men) return to their comedy roots with the darkly humorous and original Working Title film A Serious Man, released on DVD and Bluray on 15th March 2010 from Universal Pictures (UK). Starring Tony Award nominee and Broadway actor Michael Stuhlbarg as the lacklustre Larry Gopnik, this entertaining and off-beat tale tells of Larry's quest to become a serious man. Containing the trademark stamp of a classic Coen brothers' masterpiece, this dark comedy is seriously not to be missed on DVD and Blu-ray.

Already tipped for Academy Award success, A Serious Man was written, directed and produced by the critically acclaimed brothers, Ethan and Joel, and features a talented cast. Sari Lennick stars as Larry's long suffering wife Judith Gopnik and Jessica McManus and Aaron Wolf take on the roles of Larry's troublesome kids.

A Serious Man, set in 1967 Midwest America tells the story of an ordinary man and physics professor Larry Gopnik in search of answers, as his life is turned upside down by a series of unexpected events. Following the sudden announcement from his wife that she is leaving him for his smooth talking associate Sy Ableman (Fred Melamed), life as Larry knows it quickly begins to unravel.

Larry's unemployed brother is fast becoming a burden and pressures at work are escalating. Meanwhile his dangerously beautiful neighbour torments him by sunbathing nude and he finds little solace in his kids. Consulting three different rabbis, Larry embarks on a twisted journey of faith, family, delinquent behavior and mortality in a desperate search for answers.

DVD and Blu-ray extras provide a fascinating insight into the making of the film with Becoming a Serious Man, featuring the Coen brothers returning home to Minneapolis seeking inspiration, and Creating 1967 in which Production Designer Jess Gonchor goes behind the scenes.

A Serious Man addresses universal issues and ordinary man Larry Gopnik faces questions shared by us all. Looking back over his life and continuing his quest for calm, can anyone truly help Larry overcome his affliction and become a serious man?
