Although the famous singer Taylor Swift rewrote and released her album Red on her terms, she also released a short film for “All Too Well.” With new lyrics, he deepened his love affair with Jake Gyllenhaal more than ten years ago. The nine-year age difference was insurmountable. However, as a brief conclusion, it should be noted that a particular Easter egg with a red scarf serves as a natural target.
“All Too Well: The Short Film” lasts only about 10 minutes and fits into a whirlwind romance with him (Dylan O’Brien) and her (Sadie Sink). He moves in and leaves the scarf on the stairs, but over time, the two quarrel as he shrinks even more about his friends and career. He speaks clearly about Swift’s short three-month romance with Gyllenhaal when he and she separated due to the age difference.
But after their breakup, she still loves him, stays for the next few months to see her ex-husband at art shows, and even wishes he was at her 21st birthday party. Unfortunately, he went further and realized that they were toxic to each other and were more interested in the idea of love than in love. She then used it as a source of creative inspiration for the next two years. She became famous as a writer, culminating in a public reading in New York.
But in “All Too Well: The Short Films,” he stands in front of the store, looking nostalgic and regretting what happened. However, he neither goes in nor out of the premises and accepts that they are not meant as soulmates. He wears his red scarf to show that he is still in love, but he wants to divorce because she feels better.
In addition, the scarf still means a lot to her and is a sign of her passionate days. Its book cover is also reminiscent of Shel Silverstein’s The Giving Tree, with the red scarf tied to a tree and carried by the wind. Now, this scarf is a destination as fans believe it refers to a genuine one that the actor kept as a reminder of his past.
According to the text: “I left my scarf over there at your sister’s house and you still have it in your designer,” and when things agree with what’s going on in court, Swift seems to believe – or feel that Gyllenhaal got and held her scarf and maybe even used it to try to calm down.
Of course, it was never confirmed, but Gyllenhaal’s friends and even his sister Maggie refused to know anything about the scarf. So the audience questions the truth behind the piece of fabric. Whether it’s genuine or imaginary about Swift, it’s something that has inspired her art over the years.
