Inside Llewyn Davis is a 2013 American comedy-drama film written, directed and edited by Joel and Ethan Coen. The film stars Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, and John Goodman, and was produced by Scott Rudin, Ethan and Joel Coen. T Bone Burnett was the executive music producer. The story is about one week in the life of a singer-songwriter who is active in New York's folk music scene in 1961. Although Llewyn Davis is a fictional character, the story was partly inspired by the autobiography of folk singer Dave Van Ronk. Most of the folk songs performed in the film are all sung in full, and, with one exception, were recorded live.
The film won the Grand Prix at the 2013 Cannes Film Festival, where it screened on May 19, 2013. The film received a limited release in the United States on December 6, 2013, then was given a wide release on January 10, 2014. The film received critical acclaim upon release and was nominated for two Academy Awards: Best Cinematography and Best Sound Mixing. It was also nominated for the Golden Globe Award for Best Motion Picture - Comedy or Musical, among two other nominations.
