Director Ethan and Joel Cohen, 105min, Drama/Music, R

The 2014 winter series concludes on February 27th with the Golden Globe nominated best picture, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS, directed and written by the now legendary cinematic team of Ethan Coen and Joel Coen.  Starring Oscar Isaac (nominated for a Golden Globes best actor award), this musical drama follows one week in the career of a young singer as he navigates the Greenwich village folk scene of 1961.  Winner of the prestigious Cannes Film Festival Jury Grand Prize and multiple awards for screenwriting and music, this film sets the story of the young guitarist against bleak winter scenes in New York City, as he tries to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, many of which are those of his own making.  Typical of the critical response to this film is this assessment: ”Another Coen Bros marvel; unconventional storytelling, conflicted characters and endings that go against what the audience would perceive as a neat ribbon to the tale we just witnessed.”
