A collection of five films directed by moviemaking duo Ethan and Joel Coen: Barton Fink (1991), The Big Lebowski (1997), Intolerable Cruelty (2003), Burn After Reading (2008), and A Serious Man (2009).
In The Big Lebowski, Jeff 'the Dude' Lebowski (Jeff Bridges) is a bowling buff, laid-back to the point of horizontal, who gets mixed up in a blackmail plot involving a millionaire namesake. Roped into delivering the ransom to secure the release of the millionaire's kidnapped wife, the Dude's karmic balance is really put in a spin when his gun-toting buddy Walter (John Goodman) decides to help out.
In Barton Fink, successful young playwright Barton Fink (John Turturro) goes to Hollywood. He immediately obtains a contract, only to develop writer's block when he discovers he is to write a wrestling movie for a faded 40s star. The Los Angeles heat, his dingy hotel and a noisy neighbour (John Goodman) combine to increase the pressure on him, and Barton begins to lose his grip on reality.
In Intolerable Cruelty George Clooney stars as Miles Massey, a divorce lawyer who always wins his case until he comes head to head with the scheming, money-grabbing, yet alluring, Mrs Marilyn Rexroth (Catherine Zeta-Jones). Miles and Marilyn each embark on their own ruthless romantic missions to outdo one another and amass great wealth. Sparks fly in this battle-of-the-sexes comedy.
Burn After Reading concerns the whereabouts of a sensitive disc containing the incriminating memoirs of alcoholic CIA agent Osbourne Cox (John Malkovich). Cox's wife, Katie (Tilda Swinton), who is having an affair with married federal marshall, Harry Pfarrer (George Clooney), is making plans to leave her husband, and is advised by her divorce lawyer to copy his personal files onto a disc. The disc finds its way via a circuitous route to the Hardbodies fitness gym, where two unscrupulous employees, Linda (Frances McDormand) and Chad (Brad Pitt) decide to exploit their find for all they can get.
In A Serious Man, midwestern physics professor Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg)'s settled and secure life begins to spiral after his wife Judith (Sari Lennick) reveals she is leaving him for his arrogant associate Sy Ableman (Fred Melamed). Larry struggles to cope with the failure of his marriage and the unlikelihood of his unemployed brother Arthur (Richard Kind) getting a job and moving out of his house. At the same time, his son Danny (Aaron Wolff) is in trouble at school while his daughter Sarah (Jessica McManus) is stealing money from his wallet. As Judith and Sy begin to set up home together, poor Larry begins to receive anonymous letters from someone looking to ruin his chances of tenure at the university, while a failing student is trying to both bribe Larry and sue him for slander. In need of help, Larry seeks out the advice of three rabbis...
