‘Song to Song’ is about people going to South by Southwest, so where else would you have the premiere but at that very festival?
The film follows songwriters BV (Gosling) and girlfriend Faye (Mara) as they join up with Music Producer Cook (Fassbender) and a waitress he just meet (Natalie Portman) The four find them in a world of music, seduction, and drugs like only festivals can bring. While the premiere was at SXSW, the stars only had some time for some Texas BBQ and to actually watch what they made.
Director Terrence Malick is known to be an unconventional Director. So much so that he didn’t even have a script for the stars to read before hand. All they knew is a little bit about their characters, and that they’d be working on a Malick production, which was enough for them. In the above interview from the premiere Ryan Gosling, Michael Fassbender, and Rooney Mara discuss his style as well as how excited to see what they had actually created with him.
‘Song To Song’ is in theaters March 17, 2017.
