“Inside Llewyn Davis”
What Is It? The latest from the Coen Brothers, set among the folk scene of the 1960s, with a cast that includes Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Garrett Hedlund and John Goodman.
What Are The Odds Of Seeing It This Year? Pretty good, all told. Filming might not have begun until early this year, but it’s in the can as of a few weeks ago, and the Coens work fast — their last film, “True Grit” didn’t start shooting til March of 2010, but was still in theaters by that December. It might not yet have a U.S. distributor (StudioCanal are funding), but we’re sure they’ll be lining up, even if this seems more “A Serious Man” than “No Country For Old Men.” That being said, given the tight timetable, don’t be surprised if it skips the fall the festival circuit.
