IN STORES NOW

Life is rough for prof Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg) in 1967: His wife rejects him, his brother moves in and his son is more interested in Jefferson Airplane than Hebrew school. Joel and Ethan Coen's bleak comedy (up for the best picture Oscar) about growing up Jewish is a dryly amusing take on a father's search for meaning in his uncertain world. (Universal, $30)
