The Coen Brothers' new film Inside Llewyn Davis is one of the most hotly-anticipated films of 2014, and we've gotten our hands on an exclusive featurette that goes behind the scenes of the film.

Taking a look at the folk music created specifically for the movie, Chris Thile of the Punch Brothers tell us what it was like working for the Coens.

"They're there on the couch listening during the takes," marvels the singer. "They're sitting there tapping their feet and mouthing along and they're having a good time!"

Offering us an insight into how original song 'Auld Triangle' was composed, we also discover that co-star Justin Timberlake had a hand in the song.

For a looksee at the movie's plot synopsis, just read the blurb below.

Inside Llewyn Davis follows a week in the life of a young folk singer as he navigates the Greenwich Village folk scene of 1961. Llewyn Davis (Oscar Isaac) is at a crossroads. Guitar in tow, huddled against the unforgiving New York winter, he is struggling to make it as a musician against seemingly insurmountable obstacles, some of them of his own making. Living at the mercy of both friends and strangers, scaring up what work he can find, Llewyn's misadventures take him from the basket houses of the Village to an empty Chicago club, on an odyssey to audition for music mogul Bud Grossman, and back again. 

Inside Llewyn Davis opens in the UK on 24 January 2014.
