We all woke up to a lovely surprise today: The first look at “Inside Llewyn Davis,” the latest film from the Coen Brothers. The highly-anticipated movie, in the way that all of their films are eagerly awaited (but also in a way that their movies since “No Country for Old Men” have been particularly hoped for), is about a 1960s folk musician in New York City.
Oscar Isaac (“Drive,” “The Bourne Legacy”) stars as the titular Davis, while the film also includes Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund, Justin Timberlake (sigh), John Goodman (in his first Coen Brothers movie since “O Brother, Where Art Thou” in 2000) and F. Murray Abraham.
This is a terrific trailer:
Last year, New York took a peek at the set, demonstrating how the Coens transformed modern-day New York into the Village of the 1960s.
