The Coen Brothers have release a teaser trailer of their latest film – A Serious Man, which hits theaters on Friday, October 2. It’s described as a Midwestern Jewish family in 1967 – The Gopkins – struggle with their afflictions.
In A Serious Man, things start to unravel for Larry Gopnik. His wife, Judith, may be having an affair and wants a divorce. His brother, Arthur, lives with them because he is emotionally and financially incapable of living on his own. His children, Danny and Sarah, sneak money from his wallet to by LPs and pot, or to save up for a nose job. Add to that an anonymous hostile letter writer trying to sabotage Larry’s chances for tenure at the university, while a graduate student tries to bribe him by sunbathing nude. Hoping for some equilibrium in his life, Larry finally seeks advice from three very different rabbis.

The Academy-award winning filmmakers Joel and Ethan Coen of The Coen Brothers direct a Clean Coal public-service-announcement spot in an effort to expose the coal industry’s misleading marketing campaign for so-called clean coal as part of The Reality Coalition organization. The Reality Coalition was created to tell the simple truth that in reality, there is no such thing as clean coal. We were excited to be part of this important project and tell another side of the clean coal story says Joel and Ethan Coen. To learn more, visit ThisIsReality.org.
The Coen Brothers are repped by Jim Berkus and Richard Klubeck @ United Talent Agency (UTA). Thanks Hernando Bansuelo for the email. var addthis_pub=”reserveresult”;

The New York Film Critics Circle named Joel and Ethan Coen’s No Country for Old Men as best picture. Javier Bardem was awarded best supporting actor and Joel and Ethan Coen won best direction and screenplay adapted from Cormac McCarthy’s novel.
No Country for Old Men was previously honored as best picture by the National Board of Review, the Boston Society of Film Critics and the Washington, D.C.’s Area Film Critics Association.
A new film based on Cormac McCarthy’s novel, No Country For Old Men, is adapted for the screen and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. I’m really looking forward to this film. And for all of Oprah television viewers, Cormac McCarthy’s other book, The Road, was part of Oprah’s book club.
