Inside Llewyn Davis
USA, 2013, 104 Minute Running Time
NOW PLAYING at Sie FilmCenter.
Inside Llewyn Davis follows a week in the life of talented but feckless folk singer Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac), as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he struggles to make it as a musician against 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's misadventures take him from the coffeehouses of the Village to an empty Chicago club—on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul—and back again. Brimming with music performed by Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan (as Llewyn's married Village friends), as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, Inside Llewyn Davis transports you to another time and place. An epic on an intimate scale, it is Joel and Ethan Coen's fourth collaboration with multiple Grammy- and Academy Award-winning music producer T Bone Burnett. Co-starring John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, Adam Driver and F. Murray Abraham. Academy Award nominee for Best Cinematography and Best Sound Mixing.
