Won't Back Down [2012]
Music By: Marcelo Zarvos

Released By: LAKESHORE RECORDS

For Won’t Back Down, “we used some of the electronics, most notable the guitar pulse in the opening, to reflect the grittiness of the Pittsburgh neighborhood where the story takes place, and the low bass synth to reflect menace,” said Zarvos.  “Another strong element was the idea of a musical ticking clock on the strings and piano reflecting the main character's race to provide a better education and future for their children.”

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis play two determined mothers, one a teacher, who will stop at nothing to transform their children's failing inner city school. Facing a powerful and entrenched bureaucracy, they risk everything to make a difference in the education and future of their children.
 

4/5 Pleasant piece from composer Zarvos as we can share the challenges that this film is trying to bring.
