A new trailer reveals a bit more about Joel and Ethan Coen's new film, which won the Grand Prix at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival.
The trailer immerses us in New York City during the cold winter of 1961, when Llewyn Davis, a young folk singer from the counterculture scene, is struggling to earn a living. The protagonist is loosely based on the late great Dave Van Ronk, aka the Mayor of MacDougal Street, a friend and mentor of Bob Dylan's who spearheaded the 1960s folk and blues revival.
Music by both of them, by the way, is featured on the film's soundtrack, which is to be released on September 17. The tracklist comprises 14 songs, including Bob Dylan's hitherto unreleased Farewell as well as songs performed by the leads Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake.
Inside Llewyn Davis will be touring the festival circuit before starting its international roll-out in November.
