Check out this great featurette for Inside Llewyn Davis, the upcoming film from the Coen brothers. The featurette offers interviews with the Coen brothers, the crew and the lead actors. We get some behind the scenes footage and we even get a look at Oscar Isaacs rehearsing songs with Marcus Mumford, from the successful band Mumford and Sons, who was promoted to the film’s associate music producer.
We’re dying to see this. Early reviews are phenomenal, which isn’t really a surprise, it is the Coen brothers after all.
Here’s the official synopsis for Inside Llewyn Davis:
INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961 LLEWYN DAVIS (OSCAR ISAAC) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles—some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the baskethouses of the Village to an empty Chicago club—on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul—and back again.
Brimming with music performed by Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan (as Llewyn’s married Village friends), as well as Marcus Mumford and Punch Brothers, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS—in the tradition of O Brother, Where Art Thou?—is infused with the transportive sound of another time and place. An epic on an intimate scale, it represents the Coen Brothers’ fourth collaboration with multiple-Grammy® and Academy Award®-winning music producer T Bone Burnett. Marcus Mumford is associate music producer.
Starring Oscar Isaac, John Goodman, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Adam Driver, Stark Sands, and Garrett Hedlund.
