The newest Coen brothers’ movie, Inside Llewyn Davis, follows the journey of a musician in New York’s Greenwich Village during the 1960s at the cusp of the folk music revolution.
Shot mainly around New York’s Alphabet City and in the borough of Queens, the urban film is a far cry from the Coen’s last outing, the western True Grit.
The film also stars Carey Mulligan (try to find a movie she ISN’T in lately), Adam Davies, Justin Timberlake and John Goodman. The casting of Goodman restores some normality, with a whole bunch of Coen-virgins taking the leading roles.
It seems the early 1060s is the trendy half-decade these days. One report said that the “Coens could just charge onto the set of Mad Men and say “Everything here is ours now. Our Oscars trump your Emmys.”
The movie scheduled to open in the U.S. on February 8.
