With so many movies out there, how do you know what to watch? Keeping it Reel with Robyn is a film series focused on Jewish themes such as Israel and its politics, Jewish humor and the Holocaust, Jewish stereotypes, and modern Jewish identity. Join us each month as we nosh, watch a film, and discuss.
Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg) is a physics professor at a 1960s university, but his life is coming apart at the seams. His wife (Sari Lennick) is leaving him, his jobless brother (Richard Kind) has moved in, and someone is trying to sabotage his chances for tenure. Larry seeks advice from three different rabbis, but whether anyone can help him overcome his many afflictions remains to be seen.
