On October 23rd, Back Lot Music will release the Score for ‘Suffragette,’ Composed by Academy Award-winner Alexandre Desplat (The Curious Case of Benjamin Button, The Grand Budapest Hotel), both Digitally and on CD.
Academy Award-nominees Carey Mulligan and Helena Bonham Carter, and three-time Academy Award-winner Meryl Streep, lead the cast of ‘SUFFRAGETTE,’ which tells the powerful story about the women who were willing to lose everything in their fight for equality in early-20th-century Britain.
The Track-list is as follows:
2. An Army
12. Child Taken
13. Votes for Women
14. Dreaming of Equity
15. Epsom Derby
The Director Sarah Gavron spoke about her time with Alexandre Desplat on the film; “I’d wanted to work with Alexandre Desplat for many years. 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.”
And she talks more specifically about the musical approach they chose; “Alexandre came up with an idea of having this heartbeat, so to speak, going through it. It works on a number of levels for our themes and ideas. 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.”
The Film was released on October 12th in the UK and will be released on October 23rd in the U.S. You can find out more information on the Film’s Official Website here.
Coming up next for Alexandre Desplat is ‘The Light Between Oceans‘ directed by Derek Cianfrance and starring Michael Fassbender, and also his second collaboration with Director Tom Hooper (following The King’s Speech) will be ‘The Danish Girl,’ starring Eddie Redmayne and Alicia Vikander.
