We could all use a bit of sunshine this winter! This week, we revisit Little Miss Sunshine, featuring score by Michael Danna and music by DeVotchKa! Mychael’s score to Alias Grace received an EMMY® Nomination last year, also released on Lakeshore Records. The classic film starring the ensemble cast Steve Carell, Toni Collette, Greg Kinnear, Abigail Breslin, Paul Dano and Alan Arkin earned two Academy Awards including Best Actor, Alan Arkin and Best Original Screenplay! The film also earned the Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress Nomination for Abigail Breslin.
In this edition, we take this time to appreciate Little Miss Sunshine, featuring one of our favorite on-screen moms, Toni Collette! The soundtrack released by Lakeshore Records back in 2006 features score by Alias Grace composer Mychael Danna, music by DeVotchKa, Sofjan Stevens, Tony Tisdale and Rick James! The album earned Mychael Danna and DeVotchKa GRAMMY® nominations, plus two Academy Award® wins for the film.

If you’ve been following Halle Berry‘s career, then you know her new sci-fi series on CBS, Extant, is a natural progression from her work in Cloud Atlas. You’ll also know that Ms. Berry is no stranger to playing roles in thrillers. Lakeshore Records released the soundtrack to The Call, a film scored by John Debney (Walk of Shame, Draft Day) and stars Berry in a riveting role of a 911-dispatcher who decides to face her fears and go above and beyond her call of duty in order to save a young girl, played by Abigail Breslin (Perfect Sisters, Little Miss Sunshine). The bone-chilling score doesn’t let you lose that sense of uneasiness until the end.

“The series, as we’ve known so far, will center on a female astronaut trying to reconnect with her family, when she returns home after a year on a solo mission in space; her arrival back on earth comes with the realization that she’s carrying what is likely an alien baby (or something).” (Read the full story at the Indie Wire blog).
