Two big Oscar-worthy movies are opening in theaters near you. First, we have “Inside Llewyn Davis” from Joel and Ethan Coen. The film is set during the 1960s Village folk scene and it follows a week in Llewyn Davis’ (the fantastic Oscar Isaac) life as he navigates through the ups and downs of a struggling musician. Featuring a talented supporting cast headed by Justin Timberlake, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, and F. Murray Abraham.
We also have “Saving Mr. Banks,” Emma Thompson stars as P.L. Travers, the author of the “Mary Poppins” book. Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) has been courting her so he can turn the book into a movie. The film speaks volumes about art and how we use it to be at peace with our past. Colin Farrel, Jason Schwartzman, Bradley Whitford, and B.J. Novak co-star for director John Lee Hancock.
So are both films supercalifragilisticexpialidocious? Find out below with my reviews of “Inside Llewyn Davis” and “Saving Mr. Banks.”
