'A Serious man' (15) - Silent Light - Faith on Film

Sunday, 9 May 2010
15:00 to 16:00
Gala Cinema, Durham
A serious man

season of films exploring aspects of faith, conscience and enlightenment. Some of the greatest art films of all time, with lively introductions by film experts from Durham University.
"Why does Hashem make us feel the questions if He's not gonna give us any answers?" Questions of existence and religion only touched on or hinted at in previous Coen Brothers movies are given a full - and darkly humorous - treatment in this terrific, Oscar-nominated film. It's 1967 and Larry Gopnik, a physics professor at a quiet Midwestern university, has just been informed by his wife that she is leaving him for one of his colleagues. Larry's unemployable brother Arthur is sleeping on the couch, while his children eschew any sense of responsibility. With these trials of life, Larry seeks advice from three different rabbis but can anyone help him cope with his afflictions and become a righteous person - a mensch - a serious man?

dir. Joel & Ethan Coen, 2009, 105 mins

This film season has been co-organised by Gala Cinema and the Dpetartment of Yheology, Durham University.
