A handful of people attended the free showing of “Inside Llewyn Davis” last Thurs. night as the first installment of a series of free movie showings sponsored by SC4’s art department.
“Inside Llewyn Davis” is a story focused on a struggling folk singer in Greenwich Village during the early 1960s. The main character Llewyn Davis, is loosely based on folk singers from that time period such as Bob Dylan, Phil Ochs, and Dave Van Ronk. The film takes on many themes including the importance of originality, the fluid nature of one’s identity, the evils of the commercial music industry, and human determination. Above all, the film is about a musician and the music he produces.
To follow the theme of music, the next presentation is the movie “We Are The Best!” which is about a group of girls in 1980s Stockholm that start a punk rock band. The Swedish film was adapted from the graphic novel “Never Goodnight” and was featured during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival. The movie has been critically acclaimed, earning a 97% rating on Rotten Tomatoes.
The showing of “We Are The Best!” will be at 7 p.m. Thursday, March 5 in room 312 of the Main Building.
