Watch Taylor Swift Play the Piano in The Giver

We got an incredibly brief glimpse of a brunette T. Swizzle in the trailer for The Giver, but this clip gives us a whole 40 seconds of her. Taylor Swift plays Rosemary, the "Receiver of Memory" who came before movie protagonist Jonas. According to a wizened Jeff Bridges, who plays the Giver, she "no longer exists," which is why she appears in hologram form playing the piano for him (like Tupac?). It's his favorite memory of the way the world was — what he calls "hearing-beyond," or music.
