Cinematique: "Inside Llewyn Davis" (New Time, 7PM)

Official Poster

Don't miss Joel and Ethan Coen's wonderful new film. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he's struggling to make it as a musician. Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the Village to an empty Chicago club—on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul—and back again.

Brimming with music performed by Isaac, Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan, as well as Marcus Mumford and The Punch Brothers, Inside Lllewyn Davis is infused with the transportive sound of another time. (R, 1hr, 45 min)
