Sometimes the road to success is a lonely one.

Inside Llewyn Davis,” the newest Coen brothers’ film, features Oscar Isaac as Llewyn Davis, a young singer/songwriter in the heart of the 1960s Greenwich Village folk scene. The story follows Davis over a one week period, as he traverses the local music scene and attempts to make a name for himself. The exclusive preview above shows us that becoming a star — or even selling a few records — is a tough, tough prospect.

Mel Novikoff, Davis’s record exec, proclaims, “People need time. Ya know? Get to know you, buy you as a solo act… even though you’re a solo act.” With aging (and sub-par) representation in a youthful scene, Davis learns the struggles of a musician head-on and realizes it’s up to him to make some noise.

Based on the clip, quirky humor and subtle heartbreak, signatures of the Coen brothers, are in full form. The duo’s first film since 2010’s “True Grit,” “Inside Llewyn Davis” has been making the rounds on the festival circuit since May, when the film premiered at Cannes and won its Grand Prix award.

“Inside Llewyn Davis,” which also stars Justin Timberlake and Carey Mulligan, hits theaters December 20.
