“Llewyn Davis is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling 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 – on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul – and back again.” – from the film website
“The Coen brothers on top sardonic form with a winning tale of an incorrigible loser. Hits the right note on every level, from period vibe to performance.” – Total Film
“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.” – the Guardian
“This is instant A-list Coens; enigmatic, exhilarating, irresistible.” – the Telegraph

Following an initial phase when I took prepayments for a block booking for group members, this option is now closed – instead please make your own booking direct with the cinema.
If you’re open to sitting next to another member, feel free to mention your seat number in the comments below, for group members who might want to book a neighbouring seat.
Please contribute £1 on arrival (to help defray the approx. £100 per annum that Meetup charges to run a group) – thanks in advance.
In the days immediately prior, I’ll circulate details of arrangements to meet before the screening. Also, I plan to stay on for coffee/drinks at the cinema cafe-bar after the film, with anyone who would like to join me for a conversation about the film. Please let me know if you will stay on, and if necessary I’ll book a space for the group.
