New Coen Brothers Movie Focuses on 60s Folk Era

Inside Llewyn Davis is the latest movie from Joel and Ethan Coen.  The film follows a week in the life of struggling folk singer Llewyn Davis.

This film, which won the Grand Prix at Cannes, is not about the hey-day of folk when Bob Dylan was getting famous.  It’s about that dark and mostly forgotten time before the hit records and big money arrived.  A small coterie of true believers traded old songs like a secret language and most of them were kids who had grown up on the streets of New York or the prefab suburbs of Long Island and New Jersey, trying to escape the dullness and conformity of the Eisenhower 1950s.

In the tradition of O Brother, Where Art Thou? Inside Llewyn Davis is infused with the transportive sound of another time and place. The music is performed by Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan.

Inside Llewyn Davis is the Coen Brothers’ fourth collaboration with multiple-Grammy® and Academy Award®-winning music producer T Bone Burnett.
