I can’t say it much better than the official production description:
“’Inside Llewyn Davis’ follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles; some of them of his own making.”
If you are a fan of Joel Coen and Ethan Coen you won’t miss this one. I know I love the Coen’s vast array of movies and am looking forward to see how Justin Timberlake’s beard plays in this one. The beard surfaces in December of this year.
