The Coen Brothers' 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Set for December Release
A release date has finally been set by distributor CBS Films for the new Coen Brothers film, Inside Llewyn Davis, starring Oscar Isaac as musician Llewyn Davis. We've already featured one great trailer, and the film is set to premiere at the Cannes Film Festival later this month, but CBS Films has now set an official release date for the US. Posted on their Twitter, they state that "Inside Llewyn Davis will be released limited on December 6, 2013; Expansion December 20, 2013." Sounds like perfect awards season fodder, of course. I wouldn't expect anything less from the Coens, back three years after True Grit. The film does look outstanding and I'm looking forward to seeing it. However, it is another seven months until it hits theaters.
Joel and Ethan Coen are writing and directing Inside Llewyn Davis which is partly based on Dave van Ronk's memoir The Mayor of MacDougal Street, which chronicles the musician's time as a larger-than-life presence in the 60's folk music scene in Greenwich Village, known for the famous folk-music haunts and mentoring musicians such as Bob Dylan. Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund, Adam Driver and more star in the film which also brings back O Brother Where Art Thou music producer T-Bone Burnett working with Marcus Mumford of Mumford & Sons. Cool?

This subject doesnt interest me in the slightest, but I may check it out with the Coens attached, but I feel like something that isnt a crime or comedy flick by the Coens is like a missed opportunity. I want another Fargo or NCFOM

Damn that's a long ways off. I really wanted to see this sooner.

I think the Coen bros are overrated. Probably still have to check it out if it ends up great critiques as one would expect..

Please explain why they are over rated. Big Lebowski, Fargo, No Country, and O Brother are some of the best films of the past 30 years.
