Set against the Austin music scene, two entangled couples—struggling songwriters Faye and BV, and music mogul Cook and the waitress whom he ensnares—chase success through a rock ‘n’ roll landscape of seduction and betrayal.
Terrence Malick assembles a stellar cast for this sprawling and deeply affecting exploration of human relationships. Set in the Texan music industry, the romantic pentagon at the center of the narrative shares the stage with plenty of musicians such as Patti Smith, Iggy Pop, and Florence Welch.
