Inside Llewyn Davis, the new film by Joel and Ethan Coen, is now playing in theaters across the UK, earning five-star reviews from the Times of London, Telegraph, Guardian, and Time Out. "From the moment Llewyn Davis sings the folk ballad 'Hang Me, Oh Hang Me' in a spotlit halo of smoke in the Gaslight Café in downtown New York in 1961, you know you are going to love this movie," exclaims the Times. "Llewyn finds succour in the music and so do we, because it’s glorious." Says the Telegraph: "The film is wildly accomplished; moving and rich and funny and exhilarating in a way that leaves you prickling from toes to scalp. It’s an instant fixture on the Coens’ A-list, which is no small compliment."
