Cannes 2013: Inside Llewyn Davis Premiere Report

The Coens and company do the red carpet thing

The stars of Inside Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac, Carey Mulligan, John Goodman, Garrett Hedlund and Justin Timberlake) turned up to the film's Cannes premiere. The directors of Inside Llewyn Davis (Joel Coen and Ethan Coen) turned up to the film's Cannes premiere. Even the musical supervisor of Inside Llewyn Davis (T Bone Burnett) turned up to the film's Cannes premiere. Who was missing?

Sadly, it was Ulysses, the film's breakout star and, um, cat. But Ulysses is a cat that propels a lot of the movie's story. "The film doesn't really have a plot," Joel Coen quipped at the press conference. "That concerned us at one point; that's why we threw the cat in." Still, feast your eyes on the human guests at the party at the Palais in the photo gallery below, and hope Ulysses somehow gets some justice at the Palm Dog despite being feline.

Greeted with universal acclaim by critics here in Cannes, Inside Llewyn Davis is out in the US on December 20, but British Coen brothers aficionados will have to wait until January 24 to get their fix. Have a read of our initial reaction review thisaway, and check out the trailer below.
