More About A Complete Unknown

As previously reported, A Complete Unknown, focuses on Dylan’s early career and his impact on the folk music community. The movie will include his infamous performance at the 1965 Newport Folk Festival, where he upset many folk purists by playing part of his set with an electric rock band.

The movie is being directed by James Mangold, who also wrote and directed the 2005 Johnny Cash biopic Walk the Line. In a 2023 red-carpet interview with Collider, Mangold explained what excited him about the story being told in A Complete Unknown.

“It’s such an amazing time in American culture,” he said. “[It’s] the story of a young, 19-year-old Bob Dylan coming to New York with like two dollars in his pocket and becoming a worldwide sensation within three years, first being embraced … into the family of folk music in New York and then, of course, kind of outrunning them at a certain point as his star rises so beyond belief.”

Mangold also revealed in the interview that Chalamet would be singing in the film.

About the A Complete Unknown Cast

In addition to Chalamet and Barbaro, A Complete Unknown features Edward Norton as famed folksinger Pete Seeger, Boyd Holbrook as Cash, Nick Offerman as folk-music archivist Alan Lomax, and Elle Fanning as Sylvie Russo, a fictional character inspired by Dylan’s one-time girlfriend Suze Rotolo.
