Song to Song is giving me a definitive Closer vibe. That’s a great thing. I loved that drama and seeing lots of similarities with this new love story. The new Song to Song trailer dropped today and it looks kind of interesting.
In this modern love story set against the Austin, Texas music scene, two entangled couples – struggling songwriters Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling), and music mogul Cook (Michael Fassbender) and the waitress whom he ensnares (Natalie Portman) – chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.
Maybe not all that surprising, I know very little about the Austin, Texas music scene, but Portman, Fassbender and Gosling should make for some excellent tour guides.
This is the latest project from Terrence Malick, who’s done some well-received films like The Tree of Life and Knight of Cups. This wasn’t exactly on my radar, but with this crew, I’m definitely interested in checking it out now.
Song to Song opens in Los Angeles and New York on March 17 and in Washington, D.C. on March 24. This might be a little early to be in the running for the 2018 award season, but I think this could be worth checking out.
