Christmas is a time to go home to family and spend some time relaxing and winding down. And if your family is anything like mine, chances are that at least some of your hours of relaxation are going to be movie-filled. If you want a movie that's appropriate for the whole family and music-related, look no further than Inside Llewyn Davis.
Available to stream on Amazon Video for free if you have a Prime Subscription, Inside Llewyn Davis is a movie directed and written by the Coen Brothers and starring Oscar Isaac as Llewyn Davis. Davis is a folk musician trying to make it in 1960's New York City who is down on his luck. The story has a real charm to it and succeeds in making the audience care for its protagonist despite his inability to avoid screwing up. The snowy setting that preoccupies the majority of the story makes this a perfect movie during the winter holidays and will have you appreciating the warmth of being indoors with your family.
