Focus Features thanks the Writers Guild of America and proudly congratulates Joel and Ethan Coen on their Writers Guild Award Nomination for Best Original Screenplay. “Receive with simplicity everything that happens to you.” - Rashi “A theological story that could only spring from the miraculous minds of Joel and Ethan Coen. The film marks the 25th anniversary of moviemaking for these American masters, and from its audacious Yiddish-language prologue to its apocalyptic conclusion, ‘A Serious Man’ grapples with themes of temptation and divine retribution in a world only the Coen brothers could create.” For up-to-the-minute screening information, to read the script, hear the score and get a deeper look behind-the-scenes of A SERIOUS MAN, go to: FocusAwards2009.com
