Rock artist and legend Patti Smith makes a cameo in the new film Song to Song that just debuted at SXSW 2017.
The scene featured in the clip shows Smith on a patio with Rooney Mara where she imparts wisdom about art, life, loss and love.
The film Song to Song follows four people against the backdrop of Austin’s indie music scene. The film is chock full of star cameos, including Red Hot Chili Peppers, Iggy Pop, Florence and the Machine, the Black Lips and Lykke Li.
The movie was filmed during the 2012 Austin City Limits festival and is rumored to feature other artists who performed that year, including Arcade Fire, John Lydon and Iron and Wine.
The reviews have started to come in, and it looks like movie goers are divided. “The first reviews for Song to Song are in, and – as is typical for Malick’s recent run of movies – they’re all over the place,” writes Mashable. “Depending on whom you ask, the Austin-set romance is either an embarrassing disaster or a life-changing masterpiece.”
Directed by Terrence Malick, Song to Song debuted on March 10 at SXSW 2017. It will open in in New York and Los Angeles on March 17.
