Coen Brothers | Growing up Midwestern

While the Coen brother’s recent film A Serious Man is not autobiographical, it does reflect many aspects of the brothers’ personal experience. The two grew up in St. Louis Park, MN, a heavily Jewish suburb of Minneapolis. And both their parents were professors—their dad taught Economics at the University of Minnesota and their mom was an art historian at St. Cloud State University.  Early on, the brothers bought a Super-8 camera to shoot such forgotten classics as Henry Kissinger: Man on the Go, Lumberjacks of the North and The Banana Film.
