Inside Llewyn Davis, the Coen brothers’ love letter to New York City’s folk music scene in the ‘60s, borrows a few narratives from Dave Van Ronk’s memoir The Mayor of MacDougal Street.
In the film’s first trailer, unleashed this week, viewers meet Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac), a struggling songwriter hailing from the streets of Greenwich Village. Along the way, he meets a character played by John Goodman, gets a nasty safe sex tutorial from his ladylove Carey Mulligan(and her once again impressive American accent) and gets driven around by Garrett Hedlund — who is still displaying hints of his character from On the Road. It’s the jean jacket.
Justin Timberlake, Ethan Phillips and Girls’ star Adam Driver also appear in the film.
Inside Llewyn Davis, distributed by Paramount Pictures, has yet to receive a release date. This is the first picture from the Coen brothers since 2010’s award-winning Western, True Grit.
