New title for Weightless: Song to Song

Four years after, we finally have news of the other Terrence Malick’s film that Natalie filmed in 2012.
During the last two years, the movie was known as Weightless, but now IndieWire reports that the final title of the film will be Song to Song. The website also confirms its premiere in the USA on March 17, and gives more details of its argument:

Here’s the premise: “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.”

In addition to the main quartet, a number of musicians appear as well: Patti Smith, Lykke Li, the Black Lips, Iggy Pop, Florence and the Machine, the Red Hot Chili Peppers. Considering Fabio briefly appeared in last year’s “Knight of Cups,” that sounds about right.

Also, the site has the first official still of the film (unfortunately Natalie does not appear in it).

The Playlist looks at 50 films that might be in contention for appearances during the fall festival circuit. Natalie has three films that get a mention. I think I’d be happy enough if just one of these pans out.

Jackie

Given that Pablo Larrain is one of the best directors we have right now, that we have three movies from him this year can only be a good thing. And after “The Club” and “Neruda,” his English-language debut on “Jackie” couldn’t be more eagerly awaited. Following Jackie Kennedy (Natalie Portman) in the days following the assassination of her husband, it should be a very different kind of biopic, and with filming having begun last December, we can’t imagine this not getting an awards push, though it’s currently without distributor. Larrain has some history at Venice — he was on the jury there three years ago and “Post Mortem” screened there — so there, TIFF or NYFF are all viable.
