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.

"Malick's just doing his own thing. Everyone's still running to catch up with what he did in the '70s. He's already on another planet."
- Lindsey Bahr, Associated Press
"Song to Song continually flits - like the butterfly seen in one fleeting shot - from theme to theme, from love (always love) to fidelity, betrayal, identity, art, freedom, captivity, forgiveness and mercy."
- Manohla Dargis, New York Times
"The famous, finely chiseled faces that drift before the camera both fulfill and complicate one of the director's aims, which is to critique the fleeting temptations and soul-crushing consequences of fame, beauty, power and decadence."
- Justin Chang, Los Angeles Times
"Song To Song simultaneously wants to capture every little thing in its sight, and as few big things as possible; it's a strategy as foolhardy as it is stunningly beautiful."
- Jesse Hassenger, AV Club
"Malick's story is simple, for once, and his themes clearer than ever."
- Stephen Whitty, Newark Star-Ledger
"The film is about floating along on currents of uncertain desire and excitement, overthinking your own indulgence in these whims, and then sometime later on down the road, through no clear constellation of reasons, recognizing that a real human connection was squandered in the haze of all that self-exploration."
- Carson Lund, Slant Magazine
"Song to Song is, once you root around for a story, the best of a recent trilogy. "
- Jordan Hoffman, The Guardian
"Malick has found a way to translate how a familiar song has the ability to transport you back to a particular time and conjure a specific set of emotions. Whatever he’s been exploring over the past few years pays off here. "
- Erin Whitney, ScreenCrush
"A 73-year-old filmmaker explores the conflicts and milieu of characters several generations younger, reaching back as they reach forward, and meeting in the infinite middle."
- Eric Hynes. Film Comment
"Connect with the kineticism of Song to Song, and it might just leave you breathless. "
- Bilge Ebiri, Village Voice
