Inside Llewyn Davis

Coen brothers' dramedy set against the 1960s New York/Greenwich Village folk scene, loosely based on the travails of singer-songwriter Dave Van Ronk. Stars Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman and Oscar Isaac (Drive) in the lead. Grand Jury Prize winner at Cannes 2013.

Struggling folk singer Llewyn Davis (Isaac) has lost his musical partner Mike to suicide and his foray into being a solo musician with the album Inside Llewyn Davis is selling poorly. Davis spends his nights on friends' couches and his days trying to score his big break. Finding himself variously in the middle of a love triangle with friends Jim (Timberlake) and Jean (Mulligan); on the road to Chicago with fellow musicians; or getting beaten up outside music venues, this is one tough week in the life of Llewyn Davis.

Inside Llewyn Davis

Smart, unconventional and joyfully bleak. It's not the most cohesive story, but the musical numbers are wonderful and Oscar Isaac is fantastic as Llewyn Davis, a man whose constant struggle is just to know what he wants.

Loved it.

A beautiful film with a soundtrack I (happily) can't get out of my head. Who would have thought I'd ever like a Justin Timberlake song?

There but for fortune......

For anyone who lived through the folk era when Bob Dylan ruled every hipsters heart, this film is a must see. For anyone who feels the pain of struggling through life with a story to tell and no-one seemingly listening, this film is a must see. For every Coen fan this film is a must see. The story of a talented but selfish man told as only the Coen...

Inside Llewyn Davis

Fargo, The Big Lebowski, No Country For Old Men, masterful filmmakers Joel & Ethan Coen never disappoint. Profound, melancholy, and utterly enthralling. Inside Llewyn Davis is no exception. This brilliant period piece is the Coen's on exhilarating form. Set in 1961, the film follows the week of struggling folk singer Llewyn Davis, trying to make his way...

Inside Llewyn Davis is a revelatory showcase for Isaac, who sings with an angelic voice and turns a potentially unlikable character into a consistently relatable, unmistakably human presence — a reminder that humility and genius rarely make for comfortable bedfellows.

But mainly, it’s the film’s folk music that roots in the heart like a faraway lure.

Plays like an elegy. Its conclusions are more regretful than angry.

Inside Llewyn Davis throbs with melancholy, hunches under heavy skies, revels in music history's unsexiest scene and unapologetically leaves you dangling. It is also beautiful, heartfelt and utterly enthralling.
