Pedigreed or not, Chicago Int'l Film Festival films entice
"Inside Llewyn Davis" takes place in 1961 in the Greenwich Village acoustic folk scene as it approaches a musical nervous breakdown. The movie opens commercially Dec. 20. But Chicago area fans of the Coen brothers don't have to wait that long. They can try, at least, to see it when the folk-soaked ballad of comic lament closes the 49th Chicago International Film Festival Oct. 24, with star Oscar Isaac in attendance.
