Dark comedy, Drama
Ethan and Joel Coen obviously have great affection for the Greenwich Village folk music scene of the early 1960s, so their funny/sentimental/bittersweet profile of a composite-character guitarist and singer named Llewyn Davis (winningly played and sung by actor Oscar Isaac) is crammed with eccentric characters and scene-setting detail. Among the folkie flotsam and jetsam: Carey Mulligan as Llewyn’s fed-up squeeze, Justin Timberlake as her husband (they’re part of a musical trio), John Goodman as a junkie jazz maven, Stark Sands as a singing soldier, Garrett Hedlund as a guy who doesn’t do much but looks cool, and F. Murray Abraham as the archetypal club owner/talent manager who does not mince words. The screenplay, by the Coens, is solid gold. The actors, ditto. Let’s all grab a guitar and do “Hang Me, Oh Hang Me” (105 min.).
