INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS at the Drexel Theatre

This weekend we’ll get together to see what is destined to be another Coen Brother’s classic, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS!  I absolutely LOVE the look and feel of this film!  The Coen Brothers have brought us some of the best films in the last 20 years, including: Fargo, O’ Brother Where Art Thou, The Big Lebowski, and No Country for Old Men. Inside Llewyn Davis tells the story of a folk singer who navigates New York's folk music scene in the 1960s.  The film, written and directed by the Coen's, took home the Grand Prix at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival and is said rank amongst their very best!  Here’s a description, trailer and plan: 

 

DESCRIPTION:  Llewyn Davis is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter of 1961, he struggles to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles - some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the baskethouses of the Village to an empty Chicago club and back again.  Peter Bradshaw of The Guardian says, “Brilliantly written, terrifically acted, superbly designed and shot; it's a sweet, sad, funny picture about the lost world of folk music which effortlessly immerses us in the period.” Starring Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan and John Goodman.

CONFIRMED PLAN:  We’ll be seeing an opening night showing of Inside Llewyn Davis on Friday, December 20th at the Drexel Theatre!  Purchase your ticket for the7:00pm showing and meet me (Dan) inside the main lobby between 6:30 and 6:40pm.  Be sure to let them know you're with the Columbus Movie Group and discount tickets are just $7 per person!  As an added bonus, mention you're with the CMG at the concession stand and receive a large popcorn for the price of a small!  After the movie, be sure to join us for the best part of the night -- food, drinks and conversation at the Rusty Bucket (located within walking distance of the theater).   (Note:  Avoid a sell-out and try to get there early if you can!  Reviews have been fantastic and The Drexel is just about the only place you can see Inside Llewyn Davis!) 


Look forward to seeing you there!

    This is such a wonderful group. As always, I had fun conversing with other members, familiar ones and new members alike after the movie. The movie itself left me a bit puzzled this time, I am still not sure if I like it or not... it made me linger in my thoughts, which is a good thing after all... thanks again for organizing it... and btw... as we are nearing the end of this 2013... let me say thanks to Dan (and May!), Carlos, and Terry organizers (and even hospitality person Brenda) for not only keeping the group together but also for making it such a friendly and welcoming environment.

    It was fun. I know the movie was good because I'm still thinking about it. I enjoyed this group and plan on attending more movies! Thanks to Dan for being such a good host.

    I was rather puzzled by this acclaimed Coen Bros. movie. I looked up its rating on Metacritic and found that it received a grade of 92 (out of 100) based on 44 film critic reviews. That's quite high for that site. The movie was good at the time/place/character settings, and I can appreciate it as a Coen Bros. movie, but not as enjoyable as their humorous efforts like Raising Arizona and O Brother, where Art Thou. The post gathering was a lot of fun with old and new faces. And I second Judi's appreciation for Dan et al for their enthusiasm in maintaining this group and keeping things interesting.

    Went in with high expectations and wasn't disappointed. Kinda sweet, kinda funny, kida sad. Probably not for everyone but I really enjoyed it. Actually would kinda like to see it again soon. Felt like there was a lot going on between the lines. The post-movie group was GREAT! A lot of fun conversations and had a very nice time seeing new and friendly familiar faces!
