iW CONTEST | Win Two Tickets To Coens' "Serious" Premiere in NYC

indieWIRE is offering the chance to win one of 5 pairs of tickets to the New York City premiere of Joel and Ethan Coen’s “A Serious Man” later this week.

All you have to do is find three iPOPs that have at least one Coen brother pictured in them (for those less in the know, this is an iPOP – its just basically our name for photos). The photos can be from any date – they just have to feature a Coen brother. Be among the first 5 people to send the url address of all three links to and we’ll e-mail you with further details about how to go about picking up your ticket.

And if you need further encouragement as to why you want to win this contest, read indieWIRE‘s review of the film here.

Focus Features has given us 5 pairs of tickets for the New York City premiere of A Serious Man on September 24th! In attendance will be writer/directors Joel & Ethan Coen, and stars Michael Stuhlbarg, Richard Kind, Sari Lennick, Adam Arkin, Fyvush Finkel. Enter to win a pair of tickets to the premiere now!

“A Serious Man” is the story of an ordinary man’s search for clarity in a universe where Jefferson Airplane is on the radio and “F-Troop” is on TV. It is 1967, and Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg), a physics professor at a quiet Midwestern university, has just been informed by his wife Judith (Sari Lennick) that she is leaving him. She has fallen in love with one of his more pompous colleagues, Sy Ableman (Fred Melamed), who seems to her a more substantial person than the feckless Larry. Larry’s unemployable brother Arthur (Richard Kind) is sleeping on the couch, his son Danny (Aaron Wolf) is a discipline problem and a shirker at Hebrew school, and his daughter Sarah (Jessica McManus) is filching money from his wallet in order to save up for a nose job. While his wife and Sy Ableman blithely make new domestic arrangements, and his brother becomes more and more of a burden, an anonymous hostile letter-writer is trying to sabotage Larry’s chances for tenure at the university. Also, 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. Plus, the beautiful woman next door torments him by sunbathing nude. Struggling for equilibrium, Larry seeks advice from three different rabbis. Can anyone help him cope with his afflictions and become a righteous person – a mensch – a serious man?

A Serious Man opens in select theatres on October 2nd.
