He’s kind of a bastard.
The folk singer portrayed here by Oscar Isaac has talent, yes, but he also has a habit of burning bridges everywhere he goes.
Prickly when it comes to his music, he refuses to compromise his dreams of being a major star, but is all too willing to shaft those who are helping him along the way.
Possessing no filter, or at least no desire to use it if he does, it’s a wonder he only gets beaten up once as events play out.
But that beat-down is a dilly, so maybe we’re covered.
