Inside Llewyn Davis, the next Coen Bros. film, is to screen “for one night only” ahead of the Grammys. And then? Well, Joel Coen has told USA Today that the film may get a screening at Cannes. That should be more than enough to net the picture a US distributor.
Coen said that the film includes a number of full plays of folk songs of the 60s,* performed by the actors. It isn’t made clear but from the evocation of Les Miserables in the article, it seems that the performances were filmed live on set and not synced.
Here are a couple of new images – not from the film directly, but you’ll spot that as it’s neither black and white nor framed in this aspect ratio – but showing the cast mid performance.
We have Oscar Isaac in the title role, Carey Mulligan and Justin Timberlake.
Previously: the film’s rather brilliant trailer.
*There are apparently “some slight anachronisms.”
