The video is set in Africa and Swift plays an actress who is filming a movie that has many of the same elements as Streep’s film.
Swift appears in the clip sitting at a makeup table with dark brunette hair. She’s pining over her dashing leading man.
Each scene has parallels with the movie.
Streep plays Isak Dinesen, aka Danish author Karen Blixen. The movie is based on Blixen’s 1937 autobiographical novel set in Africa.
Blixen travels to Africa and weds in an arranged marriage to a Baron, who turns out to be a womanizer. The buy a plantation, but the marriage falters.
Blixen has an on-again, off-again affair with a big game hunter, played by Robert Redford, who dies tragically in the crash of a biplane–one of the tie-ins to the video.
The track is the fifth single from her pure pop album `1989.
