This soundtrack is one of the most enjoyable musical experiences I have ever had… Close your eyes and you can almost see Chris as he travels across America.” –G-Pop
While in the midst of Awards Season, we dedicate this Throwback Thursday to Into The Wild (2007), featuring the Golden Globe®-nominated score by Michael Brook! The score follows a young man from a well-to-do family, Christopher McCandless (Emile Hirsch), who, in April 1992, hitchhiked to Alaska and walked alone into the wilderness north of Mt. McKinley. He had given $25,000 in savings to charity, abandoned his car and most of his possessions, burned all the cash in his wallet, and invented a new life for himself (Amazon).
Into The Wild film, writer/director Sean Penn’s screen adaptation of the best-selling novel by the same name, received two Academy Award® nominations for Best Performance by An Actor In A Supporting Role (Hal Holbrook) and Best Achievement In Film Editing (Jay Cassidy). INTO THE WILD movie is available now On Demand (get it on iTunes).
Don’t forget to listen to Michael’s latest score on the Academy Award®- and Golden Globe®-nominated film, Brooklyn, starring Saoirse Ronan!
In 2007,BROOKLYN composer Michael Brook received a Golden Globe® nomination for his score to Into The Wild (released by Lakeshore Records). The film went on to earn two Academy Award® nominations plus numerous others. Lakeshore Records sat down with Michael Brook then to discuss his work for Into The Wild, and you can hear it below. If you haven’t seen the film yet, you can watch it On Demand on iTunes.
This year Michael Brook composed the score to the critically acclaimed Sundance Film BROOKLYN which will also screen at The Toronto Film Festival on September 13th. The album will be released on Lakeshore Records later this fall. Stay tuned for more details on this extraordinary film and score.
Lakeshore Records wishes Kristen Stewart a happy birthday! We’ve seen her grow up before our eyes on screen, so we know she’s known for more than just being Bella Swan in the Twilight Saga movies. The films, Welcome To The Rileys (available via Netflix) and the Oscar-nominated Into The Wild (watch on Netflix), hold a special place in our hearts not only because we released the soundtracks, but they are just great movies to catch KStew playing characters we’re not used to seeing.
Welcome to the Rileys Composer Marc Streitenfeld (also of The Grey Soundtrack) is just fantastic at capturing all the varying and sometimes very intense emotions from the film. Co-star James Gandolfini can also be seen in Killing Them Softly (download the album here), and Into The Wild‘s Emile Hirsch stars in The Motel Life(features Twilight co-star Dakota Fanning), the title to one of our newest soundtrack releases.
