Writers-directors: Joel and Ethan Coen
The story: In 1961, a young folk singer (Isaac) travels from the comfort of Greenwich Village to an audition in Chicago and back.
The buzz: It’s a Coen brothers movie, so there’s built-in buzz. And, in addition to best song, the movie and Isaac earned Golden Globe nominations in the comedy or musical category.
