CBS Films has released three clips and five new images from the Coen Brothers‘ upcoming film, Inside Llewyn Davis. The story takes place in the Greenwich Village folk scene in 1961, and follows singer Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) as he struggles with his career and strained personal relationships. It’s one of the best films I’ve seen this year and the soundtrack is a must-buy. These are good clips that won’t spoil anything, and they also highlight Isaac’s strong performance. John Goodman‘s character, an ornery jazz musician, also explains a traditional commit suicide.
Hit the jump to check out the clips and the images. The film also stars Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Adam Driver, Stark Sands, and Garrett Hedlund. Inside Llewyn Davis opens December 6th.
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. 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.
