Yes, that’s right: the latest film that’s about Bob Dylan and not about Bob Dylan all at the same time, with seven characters all portraying a piece of him, including Elizabeth‘s Cate Blanchett. Nice. Well, it’s just officially opened stateside, so let’s give away one of the soundtracks, shall we?
Here’s what they tell us about it:
