It's cold out, he doesn't have a winter coat, his record label isn't pushing his solo record, the folk scene is changing around him and his ex-girlfriend is pregnant. Things aren't going so well for Llewyn Davis but through thick and thin, the musician has his music and it's the thread that strings together "Inside Llewyn Davis," the Coen brothers' beautifully, hilariously melancholy look at one artist trying to break through.

Inside Llewyn Davis

It's cold out, he doesn't have a winter coat, his record label isn't pushing his solo record, the folk scene is changing around him and his ex-girlfriend is pregnant. Things aren't going so well for Llewyn Davis but through thick and thin, the musician has his music and it's the thread that strings together "Inside Llewyn Davis," the Coen brothers' beautifully, hilariously melancholy look at one artist trying to break through.

And today we're happy to unveil an exclusive, brand new clip from the movie, one that highlights Oscar Isaac's terrific, Spirit Award-nominated performance that requires both musical dexterity and an understanding of his character's particular plight. In this scene, Llewyn Davis has hit the road with an unlikely pair—an ornery jazz musician (John Goodman) and his minder/driver (a near silent Garrett Hedlund)—on his way to audition for a gig that could change his career. But his company for the drive is prickly at best, and while he sings the folk standard "Green Green Rocky Road" sweetly, his face betrays his true thoughts about his traveling companions.

It's a scene that's wistful and funny all at once, and indicative of the tone of the film in which "the Coens celebrate the hard road that can inspire great art" (read our full review of the film). "Inside Llewyn Davis" opens in limited release on December 6th. Watch below.
