Inside Llewyn Davis, the new film from Academy Awards winners Joel and Ethan Coen follows a week in the life of a young folk singer at a crossroads, struggling to make it in the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac)—guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter—is beset by seemingly insurmountable obstacles, some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn journeys from the basket houses of the Village to an empty Chicago club—on a misbegotten odyssey to audition for a music mogul—and back again. The film stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman, and Garrett Hedlund. Written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen and produced by Scott Rudin, Ethan Coen and Joel Coen.
