Kirsten Dunst Stars in R.E.M.'s Last-Ever Video

It’s Dunst, a white wall, three-and-a-half minutes, and nothing else

R.E.M.’s last-ever video for their last-ever single stars a quietly expressive Kirsten Dunst, a white wall, and nothing else. The band, who recently announced their separation after three decades, released two similar versions of the video for “We All Go Back To Where We Belong”, one starring Dunst, the other poet and activist John Giorno.

The song is one of three new songs that will be a part of their retrospective release, Part Lies, Part Heart, Part Truth, Part Garbage 1982-2011, released November 15.

In her version of the video, Dunst sits with the camera for 3:27 wearing expressions that move between pensive, dreamy, happy, silly, shy, and trying-not-to-laugh. It’s a sweet send-off for the band and an even better showcase of Dunst’s ability to charm. (But we already knew that.)
