St. Olaf gets 'Serious'
October 9, 2008
Production has begun on A Serious Man, a new film written, produced and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen -- Academy Award winners for No Country for Old Men and Fargo. The film is being shot on a variety of locations throughout Minnesota, including St. Olaf College. The brothers and their crew will spend a day filming in the college's old Science Center in October.

Meanwhile, an anonymous hostile letter-writer is trying to sabotage Larry's chances for tenure at the university. On top of that, a graduate student seems to be trying to bribe him for a passing grade while at the same time threatening to sue him for defamation. Struggling for equilibrium, Larry seeks advice from three rabbis to help him cope with his afflictions and become a righteous person -- a mensch -- a serious man.
