"Damsel" international premiere at Berlin International Film Festival in February

Damsel (2018) - IMDb
Damsel (2018) - Soundtracks - IMDb

ロバート・パティンソン、ミア・ワシコウスカ主演の映画"Damsel" が、現在開催中のサンダンス映画祭で初公開されます。

この映画は(カットされていなければ)ラッセルが出演していて、(カットされていなければ)スパークスの"Yodel For A Hanging "という未発表曲が使われているようです。"Prairie Crooner"という役名なので、ラッセルが劇中で歌っているのかもしれません。
