Coen brothers ‘Inside Llewyn Davis’ showing at the Reg Lenna June 7, 8 and 11
JAMESTOWN – Joel and Ethan Coen’s (“True Grit,” “Fargo,” “Raising Arizona”) latest film, “Inside Llewyn Davis,” shows at Reg Lenna Center For The Arts Saturday, June 7 and Wednesday, June 11 at 8 p.m. and Sunday, June 8 at 2 p.m. The movie will be presented in full digital image and sound as part of the Movies @ The Reg series.
The title character, 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.
“Inside Llewyn Davis” was nominated for Academy Awards in Best Cinematography and Best Sound Mixing. It is rated R and lasts 105 minutes.
