Awhile back, I was ever so delighted to hear the Coen Brothers were working on a script of a movie based on Dave Van Ronk's memoir, The Mayor of MacDougal Street.

Inside Llewyn Davis is the result. It is said to be loosely based on Dave's book. It's "the story of a singer-songwriter who navigates New York's folk music scene in the 1960s." It only covers a week of Llewyn Davis' life, so I'm not expecting to find a Lee Hoffman equivalent in the cast, but that won't stop me from looking for her. I certainly enjoyed reading about her in Dave's book.

T Bone Burnett and Marcus Mumford (lead singer of the English band Mumford and Sons) were involved with the music; I'll be listening to that, too. Come December, that is. But only because I'll be in Massachusetts this weekend and not in France.

Why France? Because Insider Llewyn Davis is screening this Sunday at the Cannes Film Festival, where it was invited to compete for the Palme d'Or. So cool.

The Telegraph has a brief article and the movie trailer.

I saw the trailer a while ago. It looks like a kick. And, it has a cat.

How does one pronounce "Llewyn"? El-win? Lu-win? Yu-win? Or what?

It's at the start of the trailer, right after the stairs, he introduces himself to the guy with the cat.

On the other hand, I don't think he's got a welsh accent or nothin.

This movie has such a great cast and I look forward to finally seeing it.
