Coen Brothers' 'Inside Llewyn Davis' Trailer Features Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake and a Cat (Video)

The film follows the titular folk singer mired in mediocrity in the 1960s

The newest trailer for "Inside Llewyn Davis," released Monday, hooks up stars Oscar Isaac, Justin Timberlake, John Goodman and an orange cat  – with a little help from director-writers Joel and Ethan Coen.

The film — a hit at the Cannes Film Festival where it won the Grand Prix — follows a week in the life of singer-songwriter Davis (Isaac) as he navigates New York's folk music scene during the 1960s. He finds neither success nor respect in his chosen profession.

Still, Davis can't think of a life without music or a life outside Greenwich Village — even if his current one involves trudging through snow, being slapped in alleyways and hitchhiking — and he disses a fellow singer for wanting the classic suburban dream. 

"Inside Llewyn Davis" also stars Carey Mulligan, Garrett Hedlund and Adam Driver. The film comes out Dec. 6.
