About this Film

Set in Greenwich Village just before the folk explosion of the 1960s, 'Inside Llewyn Davis' following a penniless, wandering musician as he tries to make it as a folk singer.

In the harsh cold of the Manhattan winter, Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) tours the tiny clubs and coffee houses of the Village, playing to thin audiences and sleeping on friends' couches, all the while hoping for that elusive big break. With every disappointment, his disillusionment grows - is it time for Llewyn to cut his losses?

'Inside Llewyn Davis' also features an all-star supporting cast of Carey Mulligan, John Goodman and Justin Timberlake.

The Coens' folk and glory

The Coen brothers take a particular delight in losers – think H. I. McDunnough (Nicolas Cage) in Raising Arizona, Jerry Lundegaard (William H. Macy) in Fargo, Larry Gopnik (Michael Stuhlbarg) in A Serious Man, and plenty more.

But Llewyn, artistically talented but socially and professionally inept, ceaselessly imposing on friends’ waning tolerance (and their sofas) is perhaps the most consistently hapless of the Coen roster of screw-ups.

The Coens, always exact to place and period, locate Llewyn’s sad tale in the Greenwich Village folk-music scene of the early ’60s. As ever with the brothers, there’s a relishable gallery of supporting roles, from an unhelpful lift operator to the Jewish-Chinese couple who’ve decided to call their son Greenfung.

Scene-stealer supreme, though, is a self-possessed marmalade cat who Llewyn keeps getting saddled with, and who turns in one of the all-time great feline performances. Said moggy also gives rise to one of those unforgettably left-field Coen lines of dialogue. no spoilers, but it involves the word ‘scrotum’.
