The Coen brothers' brilliantly deadpan portrait of a week in the life of a struggling, Dylan-esque sixties folk musician. It's 1961 and the folk scene in New York's Greenwich Village is booming. But talented young troubadour Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) seems to be left behind. Sofa-surfing, depressed and broke, he drinks too much and annoys just about everyone he meets as he tries to kick-start his solo career. To complicate matters further, he's impregnated foul-mouthed Jean Berkey (Carey Mulligan) - the wife of his best mate, Jim (Justin Timberlake). Llewyn is another of the Coen brothers' flawed yet essentially decent characters against whom fate seems to conspire. Unfolding over seven days, this rapturously received Cannes Festival Jury Grand Prize-winner bristles with typically mordant wit. The period setting is meticulously staged and the superb music supervised by T-Bone Burnett, who won a Grammy for his best-selling soundtrack to Coens' 'O Brother, Where Art Thou?'
