Get a taste for the Coens' latest

Exclusive: A Serious Man Clip

The new film from the Coen Brothers, A Serious Man, comes out next Friday, and we have an exclusive new clip from the film to give you a sense of what you're in for. Just don't ask the Coens what the whole thing is about, because if they know they're not telling.

We do know, however, that it's blooming good, and that it's all about Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg), a Jewish physics professor in a quiet Midwestern community in the 1960s who's experiencing something of a midlife crisis. Both in his personal and professional life everything seems to be falling apart - and his confrontation with student Clive Park (David Kang) in this clip doesn't help his rapidly deteriorating state.

A Serious Man is out on November 20 here, so you can see the whole thing at that point and try to explain to us what the bit at the start is doing there.
