The Swifties have spoken. If they had their way, All Too Well: The Short Film would sweep the Oscars and Grammys too.
Before the 10-minute film hit the Internet on Friday night, Swift attended a premiere of the project — which she wrote and directed — at the AMC Lincoln Square 13 (a multiplex with the same number of screens as her favourite number) in New York City.
The theatre was packed with her fans, who wore red, naturally, and cheered and sang along at Swift’s own encouragement.
Swift has never commented on the exact origins of ‘All Too Well’ which came out nearly 10 years ago. But according to clues put together by her followers, the song details Swift’s painful breakup from Jake Gyllenhaal, who dated the singer in 2010.

Before the short film started, Swift thanked her fans for helping her create “a cinematic universe around” the song.
“For me personally, this song is 100 per cent about us and you,” Swift told the group, as she explained how ‘All Too Well’ didn’t even have its own music video when she released her album Red.
That’s all changed now. All Too Well: The Short Film is like a music video on steroids meets a Noah Baumbach movie. It’s set to Swift’s 10-minute, extended version of ‘All Too Well’, a bonus track part of Swift’s Red (Taylor’s Version), which was released on Friday.

In the new lyrics to the song, Swift sings: “You kept me like a secret and I kept you like an oath/You said if we had been closer in age maybe it would have been fine, and that made me want to die.”
The movie features dialogue — mostly fighting — between the lead actors: Sadie Sink (Stranger Things) as a younger Swift, and Dylan O’Brien (as presumably Gyllenhaal). In real life, Gyllenhaal is nine years older than Swift.
For those who have loved and wondered about the basis of ‘All Too Well’ over the years, the video offers new glimpses (we think). In one scene, the male character complains that his girlfriend is too quiet around his friends, and she — in tears — blames him for not holding her hand at the dinner table.
He also doesn’t attend her 21st birthday, and there’s an appearance of the infamous scarf that’s a lyric in the song, left at her boyfriend’s sister’s house (and also featured in a real-life paparazzi shot of Swift walking with Gyllenhaal).
Swift appears in a cameo as herself at the end, in a sequence where she’s written a novel called ‘All Too Well’ based on the doomed relationship.

As the crowd entered the theatre on Friday afternoon, they were handed a packet of tissues with the name of the song.
The screening ended with Swift performing the 10-minute version of ‘All Too Well’ live with a red guitar. She then played the movie again, as she left the theatre.

Taylor Swift’s rep responds to reports the singer has the worst private jet carbon emissions
A spokesperson for Taylor Swift has responded to a report that named the singer as the celebrity with the worst private jet CO2 emissions.
Yesterday, a report released by Yard claimed the American singer was the biggest CO2 polluter of the year so far, having flown in her private jet 170 times since January and totalling 8,294.54 tonnes of CO2.
However, Swift’s spokesperson told Buzzfeed News the statistics are inaccurate.
For context, the report claims the average person produces just seven tonnes of carbon emissions per year.
Swift’s representative said only some of the 170 flights can be attributed to the singer: “Taylor’s jet is loaned out regularly to other individuals. To attribute most or all of these trips to her is blatantly incorrect.”
Regardless, it is clear Swift’s jet is racking up significant amounts of carbon emissions due to its inefficient use.
According to the Yard report, her average flight time is just 80 minutes, and her jet’s shortest recorded flight flew between Missouri and Nashville for just 36 minutes.
Other significant celebrity polluters include boxer and domestic violence perpetrator Floyd Mayweather, whose shortest flight was just 10 minutes long but emitted one ton of carbon; Kim Kardashian, who has emitted 609 times more carbon than the average person; and director Steven Spielberg, who took an 18-minute flight between Rotterdam and Amsterdam – a route which, when taken by train, takes only an hour.
The subject of celebrity carbon emissions has blown up ever since Kylie Jenner shared an out-of-touch photo of her and partner Travis Scott posing in front of their private jets with the caption, “you wanna take mine or yours?”
In the midst of the backlash, many began diving deeper into Jenner’s private jet use by examining the Celebrity Jets Twitter account, which records celebrity private jet trips.
Many were horrified she was regularly taking flights as short as 12 minutes and reprimanded her for “her absolute disregard for the planet”.
Many found it hypocritical that ordinary people were being asked by big companies to reduce their car trips and use paper straws when celebrities are constantly leaving huge carbon footprints with frivolous trips in their private jets.
Despite the wave of criticism, celebrities have continued to take private flights between short distances.

How to Make Sense of a Very Unpredictable Fall Movie Season
All of a sudden, the fall movie season looks very busy. This week brought two big festival announcements loaded with major films to come: First came Venice, with a lineup that includes everything from Darren Aronofsky’s “The Whale” to “Bardo”; it was followed by TIFF, where Steven Spielberg’s “The Fabelmans” will premiere alongside Sam Mendes’ “Empire of Light” and Sarah Polley’s “Women Talking,” among many others. Meanwhile, Telluride continues to shroud its selections in secret, but the latest lineups help us get a sense of what to expect there as well.
In this week’s episode of Screen Talk, Eric Kohn and Anne Thompson dig through both lineups to get a sense for which films could impact the coming awards season and why it’s almost certain to be an unpredictable ride. They also address the return of competitiveness between festivals that seemed to subside earlier in the pandemic, and touch on the recent changes to the Oscar submission rules in France.
Watch the full episode above or listen it below.
Screen Talk is produced by Azwan Badruzaman and available on Apple Podcasts, Stitcher, and Spotify, and hosted by Megaphone. Browse previous installments here, subscribe here, and be sure to let us know if you’d like to hear the hosts address specific issues in upcoming editions of Screen Talk.
