Back Lot Music will release SUFFRAGETTE - Alexandre Desplat


Back Lot Music will release SUFFRAGETTE – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally and on CD October 23, 2015. The album features an original score from the Academy Award®-winning composer Alexandre Desplat (THE GRAND BUDAPEST HOTEL, THE KING’S SPEECH).

“I’d wanted to work with Alexandre Desplat for many years,” said SUFFRAGETTE director Sarah Gavron. “I think he’s got the ability to do something that always feels new, interesting, fresh, and not sentimental. He really responded to the story of the Suffragettes.”

Oscar-winning composer Alexandre Desplat is one of the most sought-after film composers in the world today. Desplat is noted for his collaborations with some of the world’s top filmmakers: Wes Anderson, George Clooney, Stephen Daldry, David Fincher, Stephen Frears, Tom Hooper, Ang Lee, Terrence Malick, Roman Polanski, and Angelina Jolie, to name a few.

Desplat first captivated American ears with The Girl with the Pearl Earring and Birth. The Golden Globe and Oscar winner has since scored a range of incredible films, garnering Oscar nominations for THE Queen, The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, Fantastic Mr. Fox, The King’s Speech, Argo, Philomena, The Imitation Game, and The Grand Budapest Hotel which won him the 2015 Oscar for Best Original Score.

Gavron notes, “We had the idea of a big-scale score that gave you a sense of the drama and the action, but we also wanted to enhance the intimate moments which were just about the interactions between Maud and her son, or Maud and her husband, or a few of the women together.
 


“I was very keen that the film felt on all sorts of levels very real and visceral and connected.  I wanted the audience to feel like they were walking through those streets with Maud and the other women, that the world felt very believable. An important function of the music was to chart the emotional journey, but also reflect the suspense and urgency of those big set pieces where dozens of women were putting themselves in danger because of their activism.”

Focus Features will release SUFFRAGETTE in New York and Los Angeles on October 23, 2015; in October 30, 2015 in additional cities; and across the country in November 2015. SUFFRAGETTE – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally and on CD October 23, 2015.
