United States/United Kingdom/French drama—This film was nominated for Oscars in two categories, sound and cinematography, but Oscar Isaac's acting, singing, and playing was the highlight of the film. This film, for him, was a blessing I am sure, as he definitely was made for this part. I do not know if he was an actor before a singer/songwriter, but he has become known as an actor and his audience is surprised that he is also an accomplished singer and songwriter. He is a starseed and, understanding destiny as I do, he must have done something right in order for God to bless him to make his living as an actor. And he is an excellent actor as well as a singer/songwriter and guitar player.

In the film, Llewyn has not gotten the break that he has hoped for, although he played at the Gaslight club many times. At the end of the film, when he is just about ready to rejoin the Merchant Marine and give up on his music career (like many musicians do), it shows a young Bob Dylan singing at the Gaslight. And we all know what happens with Bob Dylan. Do only the best succeed? Well I know that is not true, because the best often do not succeed, just like in the movie Llewyn Davis did not succeed. In real life, Oscar Isaac has succeeded. Carey Mulligan, Justin Timberlake.
