Carey Mulligan Talks About “Inside Llewyn Davis”

I love, love, love Carey Mulligan! She’s a fantastic actress who always turns in memorable performances. Last year, she sang in the movie “Shame” for director Steve McQueen, and this year, she’s part of a triplet of performers (with Justin Timberlake and Stark Sands) ala Peter, Paul, and Mary in the Coen Brothers’ “Inside Llewyn Davis.” In this interview, we talked about:

*** What attracted her to making the movie
*** Singing in “Inside Llewyn Davis”
*** Her character Jean
*** The fairy-tale backbone of “Inside Llewyn Davis” like a hodge podge of “Alice in Wonderland” and “Pinocchio”
*** The movie feels hopeful

Official Synopsis:

INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles-some of them of his own making.
