Inside Llewyn Davis - Movie Review

Inside Llewyn Davis (R) 104 minutes A-
You can hear the whistle blow a hundred miles

Starring Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Justin Timberlake, Garrett Hedlund, F. Murray Abraham, Adam Driver, Alex Karpovsky and Max Casella.

Inside Llewyn Davis is the Coen brothers sad but affecting tale of a luckless troubadour whose music goes unrecognized as his life plummets into despair.  Set in New York (think Greenwich Village folk scene), during the winter of 1961, I found this film extremely well done, believable, and full of unassuming performances.  This is one of the Coen brothers finest films! Recommended for those who like folk music, the Coen brothers, and/or films featuring a good performance by a cat.
