Idealistic young folk singer Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) struggles to make a name for himself in the Greenwich Village folk scene of the early 1960s in this fictional period drama from Joel and Ethan Coen. As the harsh winds of winter blow through the streets of New York City, the homeless singer/songwriter drifts from couch to couch in search of his big break. Feeling that he's finally burned his bridge with longtime friends and fellow folk singers Jim (Justin Timberlake) and Jean (Carey Mulligan), and convinced that his recent work on a novelty song will lead him nowhere, Llewyn hitches a ride to Chicago with the mysterious Roland Turner (John Goodman) and his taciturn valet Johnny Five (Garrett Hedlund) on a mission to audition for famed impresario Bud Grossman (F. Murray Abraham). Meanwhile, Llewyn discovers that he himself may be the biggest obstacle on his arduous road to success
Directed by Joel & Ethan Coen (USA)
Running Time 104 minutes
Genre Drama / Music
Beguiling, beautiful, funny and sad, the film is like a luminous time travel ride, taking us deep into the hipster heart of New York's Greenwich Village, circa 1961, in the middle of the flowering folk music scene.
Musically and visually, Inside Llewyn Davis offers plenty of frictionless pleasures to compensate for the prickly scrappiness of its hero.
Hilarious in the Coens' weird, askew way, but also absolutely crushing. This movie breaks my heart in a hundred different ways.
