With just over a week to go until the release of The Coen Brothers’ INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS, two new clips have been revealed – a behind-the-scenes music based featurette featuring T Bone Burnett and Oscar Isaac and an all new clip entitled “Jean and Llewyn in Cafe” featuring Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan and the Cat.
INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is at a crossroads. 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. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the basket houses of the Village to an empty Chicago club, on an odyssey to audition for music mogul Bud Grossman, and back again. Brimming with music performed by Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan (as Llewyns married Village friends), as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS, in the tradition of O Brother, Where Art Thou?, is infused with the transportive sound of another time and place. An epic on an intimate scale, it represents the Coen Brothers fourth collaboration with Oscar and Grammy Award-winning music producer T Bone Burnett.
INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS has been nominated for 2 Academy Awards® for CINEMATOGRAPHY (Bruno Delbonnel) and SOUND MIXING (Skip Lievsay, Greg Orloff and Peter F. Kurland) as well 3 BAFTAS, including best original screenplay, 2 Academy Awards including Best Cinematography. It was the winner of Best Picture at the National Society of Film Critics Awards and is released in UK cinemas Friday 24th January.
