It is soundtracked by songs from the new album, including the early singles “Emily I’m Sorry” and “True Blue.” Julien Baker helps fix a car and runs around outdoors before other members Lucy Dacus and Phoebe Bridgers join her. There’s also a monster truck derby, some implied fire destruction, and other fun surprises. Each mini-segment is sandwiched with a vocal transition and tends to focus on a different member before they reunite at the end.
The Film closes on a sweet note after all the members paint a room blue together. They then share some iPhone-style shot footage of them laying together in bed — before flashing the Boygenius logo.
Directed by Kristen Stewart, The Film had its global premiere today (March 30) at a secret location and time in Los Angeles. Earlier this week, fans got a link to sign up for an invitation, with only just over a hundred spots available. The teaser poster also took on a spacey, horror feel.
