The Coen brothers, Joel and Ethan, set this film in suburban Minnesota, where they grew up as sons of Jewish academics. A Serious Man is a complex, mature black comedy. It explores many themes while keeping a great pace, and raising a lot of interesting questions on life, its consequences, and its uncertainty.
We are delighted to announce that Rabbi Dr Rafi Zarum, known to many of our members, will be the guest speaker prior to the screening of our fifth film in this third series of Pinner SYNEMA.
Dr Zarum is a film buff and somewhat of a specialist on the Coen brothers’ films – consequently his introduction should be most informative in setting everything into context.
