All The Cameos in Terrence Malick's New Film, 'Song to Song'
For a filmmaker who’s reputation is inarguably iconic, Terrence Malick rests his creative kingdom on relatively few projects: a mere six, from the beginning of his career until very recently (2014). With three new ones in post-production, it goes without saying that a lot is riding on these films, and for the upcoming Song to Song, he pulled out all the stops.
Premiering at this year’s SXSW in Austin, Texas (Malick’s home base), Song to Song is a romance set in the town’s music scene, where we meet two entangled couples—Faye (Rooney Mara) and BV (Ryan Gosling), and Cook (Michael Fassbender) and the waitress who falls for him (Natalie Portman). According to the movie’s producers, it’s a “rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.” And to anchor the film in celebrity-greatness? An A-list roster of legendary actors, actresses, and musicians. Peep the most notable below, and stay tuned for the flick’s SXSW debut this March.
