Set in 1961, in Greenwich Village. Llewyn Davis is trying to make it as a folksinger in New York’s winter. He’s got no coat, he’s no money, he’s not getting paid by his manager. Shot with the Coen Brother’s usual black humour. The film follows a week in which Davis struggles to beat obstacles, many of his own making.

- Good music, just a shame he couldn’t get anywhere
