Sony Music: "THE BEST OF ENEMIES" music by MARCELO ZARVOS


Sony Music announces the release of THE BEST OF ENEMIES (ORIGINAL MOTION PICTURE SOUNDTRACK), with music by composer MARCELO ZARVOS (Wonder, Fences, Enough Said, The Chaperone).  Available Friday, April 5, the soundtrack features music from the Taraji P. Henson and Sam Rockwell-starring film, which makes its theatrical debut via STXfilms on Friday, April 5. 

Of the soundtrack, composer MARCELO ZARVOS says: “The score of The Best of Enemies utilizes a lot of guitar and different types of plucked string instruments found in the American South like dulcimer, mandolin along with piano, voice, orchestral and solo cello. The film deals with the racial tension of early 1970’s North Carolina and with characters finding the common humanity on both sides of the racial divide. The music balances the grueling realities of the time period with a message of redemption.”

Based on a true story, The Best of Enemies centers on the unlikely relationship between Ann Atwater (Taraji P. Henson), an outspoken civil rights activist, and C.P. Ellis (Sam Rockwell), a local Ku Klux Klan leader who reluctantly co-chaired a community summit, battling over the desegregation of schools in Durham, North Carolina during the racially-charged summer of 1971. The incredible events that unfolded would change Durham and the lives of Atwater and Ellis forever.  Robin Bissell makes his directorial debut from his own script, which is based on the novel The Best of Enemies: Race and Redemption in the New South by Osha Gray Davidson.
