Well, this has been quite a month for Mr. George Clooney! First, news of his engagement to British Barrister Amal Alamuddin and now a birthday. We couldn’t be happier for him.

Carter Burwell is the composer known for the Twilight theme and Composer Graham Reynolds scored Bernie, another Lakeshore Records release.
Burn After Reading features an all-star cast: George Clooney, Frances McDormand, Brad Pitt (a frequent co-star) and John Malkovich. What happens when two gym employees stumble upon a disk containing the memoirs of a CIA agent and tries to sell it? A Scanner Darkly is a visually-mesmerizing animated film starring Keanu Reeves and Robert Downey, Jr. In the not-so-distant future, Reeves plays an undercover agent who begins to lose his identity while getting involved with a dangerous new drug.
We congratulate Brad Pitt for producing this year’s Best Picture Oscar for “12 Years A Slave.” Not a dry eye was in the audience as Best Actress in a Supporting Role winner Lupita Nyong’o gave a humble speech about her experience working on the film.
