AceShowbiz - Taylor Swift has finally unleashed a music video for "All Too Well" nearly a decade since the song's release. After "All Too Well: The Short Film" arrived on Friday night, November 12, many fans expressed their heartbreak over the tragic love story.
Starring Dylan O'Brien and Sadie Sink, the 13-minute clip narrates how Sadie's Her is mesmerized by Dylan's character, Him. The footage sees the two lovers having a romantic moment in the woods in Autumn before things turn ugly following a dinner with Him's friends.
Her feels as if Him keeps her "like a secret" while she keeps him "like an oath." Although everything is good between them despite having a small fight, Him finally breaks things off, leaving Her devastated and always feeling alone in a crowd.
Fast forward 13 years later, Sink's character is portrayed by Taylor, who becomes a successful author. The clip ends with her reading her book "All Too Well" while her ex looks through the window wearing her red scarf that she left at his "sister's house."
Many have since reacted to the emotional clip. One fan commented, "The most gut wrenching, sacred, painful, beautiful thing I've ever watched." Another wrote, "My throat tightened more as the minutes passed watching this master piece but seeing myself as the main character. Exactly 13 years ago, this was my reality. No cap."
Fans of Taylor, who just dropped her latest re-released album "Red (Taylor's Version)", have long suspected that "All Too Well" is about Taylor's three-month romance with actor Jake Gyllenhaal. However, the Grammy winner still played coy about who exactly the song is about.
"That's one of the interesting questions that people ask me all the time about songs, and what I think is important to note is that these songs were mine years ago when they were written. Now they're ours, now they're shared," Taylor told Extra at a premiere of the short film. "I think every person out there might have someone they think of when they hear the song, and that's what I want."
Taylor briefly dated Jake back in 2010. However, the exes have both moved on since she's now dating Joe Alwyn while the "Spider-Man: Far From Home" star is in a romantic relationship with Jeanne Cadieu.
