In Greenwich Village in the early 1960s, gifted, but volatile musician Llewyn Davis contemplates leaving the music scene altogether to return to sea as a merchant marine after the suicide of his singing partner.
Joel and Ethan Coen are certainly among the most consistently brilliant filmmakers in the world. They repeatedly produce intelligent, sophisticated, personal and highly likable films. As such, I find myself going into the cinema with not only high expectations, but an acknowledgeable soft spot for the film before its even begun, adopting my most forgiving viewing stance.
