Get ready to cry out loud. All too well: the short film has arrived.
On Friday night, first-time director Taylor Swift released her debut short film via YouTube. In Taylore’s first short, Dylan O’Brien and Sadie Sink interpret love interests against the backdrop of an autumn love story shot on 35mm.
The short is named after and includes an extended version of a track from Swift’s fourth album, Red. “All Too Well (10 Minute Version) (Taylor’s Version)” – and the rest of Red (Taylor’s Version) – came out late Thursday as a sort of silver lining for the superstar’s ongoing effort to re-release his first discography. after a long legal battle.
Having seen the short film only once, I cannot list every possibly autobiographical clue here. But an opening quote from the poet Pablo Neruda sums up the tone of the short film well: “Love is so short, forgetting is so long”. Sure to say, we won’t forget it anytime soon.
