Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter of 1961, Llewyn Davis struggles to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles - some of them of his own making.
Relying on the kindness of both friends and strangers, Llewyn (Oscar Issac) embarks on an odyssey that takes him from the streets of Greenwich Village to a Chicago club, where awaits a music mogul who could give him the big break that he desperately needs.
Although Davis is a fictional character, the story was partly inspired by the autobiography of folk singer Dave Van Ronk. Most of the folk songs performed in the film are sung in full and recorded live with T Bone Burnett as the executive music producer.
This film won the Grand Prix at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, and was nominated for two Academy Awards (Best Cinematography and Best Sound Mixing) and three Golden Globe Awards: Best Motion Picture – Comedy or Musical, Best Actor – Motion Picture Musical or Comedy (Oscar Isaac), and Best Original Song.
