Inside Llewyn Davis
Director: Joel Coen
Starring: Carey Mulligan,Justin Timberlake,Oscar Isaac,Jerry Grayson
The most marmite Coen Brothers film to date, Inside Llewyn Davis took some its audience by sweet surprise in its quaintness upon its cinema release in January this year, and others by sincere disappointment.
The film follows a rather shy, insecure young folk singer in 1960s New York, as he struggles with the lows and shoots for the highs of forging a tough path to a much-desired stardom.
It’s equally funny and sincere in the right places, with some genuinely heartwarming spans of dialogue.
Taken with an open mind, Inside Llewyn Davis further proves the enviable dynamics of the Coens’ filmmaking.
