Taylor Swift appears to be courting a Best Short Film Oscar nomination for Very good. But from what she told attendees at the Toronto Film Festival this weekend, one day she might also be in the running for a Best Picture trophy.
According Variety, in a moderated talk at the festival, Taylor said of directing, “I think I’m at a place now where the next baby step isn’t a baby step.” It would be committing to making a film.
“I feel like I would absolutely love the right opportunity to come along because I absolutely, absolutely love telling stories that way,” she added, saying it would be “such a privilege and an honor”. [to direct a feature film].”
Taylor added that she sees herself directing “human stories about human emotion”, noting that she can’t imagine ever “filming an action sequence”.
Referring to the plot of Very goodshe joked, “I don’t always see myself telling stories about extreme, guttural heartaches at your most formative age that weaken you emotionally for years and then you have to develop the scar tissue to keep going. your life and limp head to your typewriter and write a novel about it I think I did that.
As for that infamous “scarf” – first mentioned in the lyrics of the song ‘All Too Well,’ and now a focal point of the film – Taylor said: “Basically, the scarf is a metaphor…And I think when I say it’s a metaphor, I’ll just stop.
