The new trailer for “Inside Llewyn Davis” is as catchy as the backing folk track from the film. It’s also chock full of quoted critical praise for the upcoming Coen brothers’ film.
The titular struggling musician lives a fairly depressive existence, though he can’t understand how others get through their mundane, normal lives.
The clip helps to explain Davis’ sadness: His father is essentially a vegetable, his former partner threw himself off the George Washington Bridge. The latter is something Roland Turner (John Goodman) just cannot wrap his head around:
“George Washington Bridge? You throw yourself off the Brooklyn Bridge, traditionally,” he says in the clip. “George Washington Bridge? Who does that?”
“Inside Llewyn Davis” also stars Justin Timberlake, Garrett Hedlund and Adam Driver. It opens Dec. 6.
