Set in 1961, Inside Llewyn Davis follows a week in the life of the young, struggling folk singer Llewyn Davis as he tries to navigate the Greenwich Village folk scene during an unforgiving New York winter. He faces insurmountable obstacles including the death of his music partner and financial woes, especially since his recent solo album is not selling. He continues to try to make it as a musician while relying on the generosity of others -- drifting from couch to couch living at the mercy of both friends and strangers. Llewyn’s misadventures take him from the baskethouses of Greenwich Village to an empty Chicago club on an odyssey to audition for a music mogul -- who tells him he is not cut out to be a solo performer. Dejected, he hitchhikes back to New York City and begins to realize that he may be the architect of his own undoing as he tries to figure out what to do with his life.

The DVD and Blu-ray feature a 40-minute, making-of documentary, “Inside Inside Llewyn Davis,” with insights from the filmmakers, cast, crew and musicians, including Oscar Isaac, Elijah Wald, Stark Sands, T Bone Burnett, Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake, Marcus Mumford, Chris Thile, John Goodman, F.
