Many had thought the Coen Brothers’ Inside Llewlyn Davis would get an Oscar-bait late-2012 release, but it’s not hitting the US until February 8th and should come to the UK not long afterwards.
Oscar Isaac stars as the title character, a folk singer making his way through the Greenwich Village music scene in the 1960s. The movie is loosely based on the life of folk singer Dave Van Ronk. Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Gerrett Hedlund, and John Goodman also star.
It certainly looks stylish, with plenty of the Coens’ trademark sharp dialogue, although it’s definitely one of their more idisyncratic efforts.
