Overview

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.

Reviews:
"[A] boldly original, highly emotional journey through Greenwich Village nightclubs, a bleak New York winter, and one man’s fraught efforts to reconcile his life and his art." Variety


"The Coens make their own kind of music -- hilarious, heartfelt and irresistibly twisted." - 09/12/2013 Rolling Stone


"The Coens bing the pre-Dylan 1960s Village to life with a spangly authenticity that leaps off the screen." -- Grade: A- - 12/13/2013 Entertainment Weekly


"As an evocation of a seminal period in popular culture, the production is peerless; no feature film has ever explored the intersection of the folk movement and the Beat Generation with such fidelity to the spirit of the time." - 12/05/2013 Wall Street Journal


"[I]t’s a Coen brothers movie, which is to say a brilliant magpie’s nest of surrealism, period detail and pop-culture scholarship." - 12/06/2013 New York Times


3 stars out of 4 -- "Though his story is enigmatic, the film itself is brilliantly acted, gorgeously shot and altogether captivating." - 12/14/2013 USA Today


"[W]hile bleak, funny, exquisitely made INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS echoes familiar themes and narrative journeys, it also goes its own way and becomes a singular experience, one of their best films." - 12/05/2013 Los Angeles Times


4 stars out of 4 -- "INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS is the most satisfyingly diabolical cinematic structure that the Coens have ever contrived..." - 12/06/2013 RogerEbert.com


"Besides a fine and funny character piece, the film is also a snapshot of a very specific time and place..." -- Grade: B+ - 12/05/2013 A.V. Club


4 stars out of 4 -- "As embodied by the gifted actor and singer Oscar Isaac in a poignant, mesmerizing breakout performance, Llewyn emerges as an improbably sympathetic anti-hero in INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS..." - 12/20/2013 Washington Post


"This is a well-crafted look at the American folk music scene of the early 1960s, a sometimes hilarious dry comedy -- and oh yeah, the music is terrific." - 12/18/2013 Chicago Sun-Times


5 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he Coens flaunt genuine affection for the music genre they’re featuring, while still sending it up when they want to." - 01/20/2014 Total Film


5 stars out of 5 -- "[B]eautiful, heartfelt and utterly enthralling." - 01/17/2014 Empire


"[T]his film offers a stringent voyage of overcast skies, melancholy folk, soured relationships and no direction home. Llewyn is a character without rudder or anchor..." - 02/24/2014 Sight and Sound


"The cast is uniformally good -- props go to Oscar Isaac as the complex and contradictory Llewyn..." - 01/24/2014 Uncut
