OHS Film Review: Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour

by Aleena Khan

Taylor Swift has released many short films and movies which have taken the internet by storm. Most recently, Taylor Swift released her movie, The Eras Tour, on October 13th. This movie highlighted and captured the beauty and magic of her ongoing tour, The Eras Tour. The Eras Tour consists of her many different eras as an artist including performances from her first album to her most recent album, Midnights. This movie captures her growth as an artist and gives those who missed out on concert tickets an opportunity to be able to view the beauty of the Eras Tour.

The movie feels as if you are experiencing the Eras Tour backstage in a way. Director Sam Wrench took his time and carefully captured every moment of the tour and it’s as if you could feel the excitement through the screen. As you’re sitting there watching the two hour and 48 minute movie (similar to the length of the Eras Tour shows), you feel as if you are truly in the crowd watching all of these amazing performances put on by Taylor Swift as well as her production and dance team. Sam Wrench’s ability to edit as well as direct this movie was amazing and really captures the Eras Tour feeling. 

In addition to the movie itself, Taylor Swift designed merchandise to be sold at different movie theaters. This merchandise included pink and black popcorn buckets, cups, and tumblers with the Eras Tour print all over them. Swift also took time to make appearances at 13 different movie theaters for the premier in Los Angeles a few weeks ago.

Taylor Swift is an amazing performer and she connects emotionally with both the songs and her audience throughout the entirety of the movie. Swift amazingly finds a way to make sure that every person watching the movie feels like they are her best friend. Taylor Swift has been an amazing role model for many young women, and her movie captures her beauty and magic.
