The Brothers Coen get folksy in their latest flick, Inside Llewyn Davis. Aside from being difficult to spell, the film features some finely tuned stringed music, as well as the acting chops of John Goodman, Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund and Oscar Isaac. Justin Timberlake is also in the film.
The film tells the story of oa young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles—some of them of his own making.
Inside Llewyn Davis premiered at this year’s Cannes Film Festival and will see US release this December.
