On November 10th, the film series veers from the happy go lucky artist to the most familiar theme of the self-destructive artist. The individual who suffers in his or her quest to have their art become relevant.
Inside Llewyn Davis, a 2103 film co-directed by brothers Joel and Ethan Coen follows the journey of a folk singer in the early 1960’s in New York City as he attempts to build a career and a life. It’s a challenging film for the viewer in that the lead character, Llewyn Davis, played by the insanely watchable Oscar Isaac, seems bent on doing everything in his power not to have the career he so desperately wants.
As is the case with all of the Coen brother’s films it does not fall into any one particular category. It is part musical, part comedy and tragedy, and of course, a well-acted drama that stays with you long after the film has finished.
Inside Llewyn Davis screens on November 10 at 7 pm. All films are free to attend and to make your experience that much more enjoyable; we will be offering popcorn and refreshments for sale.
