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!)
