This Mother’s Day, Lakeshore Records reflects on several movies which tell the story of four different moms: Expecting, starring Michelle Monaghan (Better Living Through Chemistry); Little Miss Sunshine, starring Abigail Breslin (Perfect Sisters); People Like Us, starring Elizabeth Banks (Walk of Shame); and The Kids Are All Right, starring Julianne Moore, Annette Bening and The Hunger Games‘ Josh Hutcherson. Lakeshore Records is proud to have released the movie soundtracks to these endearing films.
Expecting also stars Radha Mitchell as “Lizzie,” who has given up trying to conceive after years of trying with her husband, until her best friend Andie (played by Michelle Monaghan), gets pregnant unexpectedly. Little Miss Sunshine (rent it on iTunes) is about a dysfunctional family who races across the country in a VW bus to get their little girl (Abigail Breslin) into a beauty pageant finals. The Kids Are All Right is about a modern family coming to terms with their daughter going off to college (Mia Wasikowska) and their son trying to find his biological father (Mark Ruffalo). People Like Us stars Chris Pine who, while taking care of the affairs of his recently deceased father, discovers he has a long-lost sister (Elizabeth Banks).
Before Elizabeth Banks darted across town in a yellow dress and boop-booped her way into our hearts in Walk of Shame, we saw her in the following films: Daltry Calhoun (watch on YouTube); Definitely, Maybe, with a soundtrack scored byClint Mansell (watch on HitBliss); People Like Us, scored by A.R. Rahman(watch on Google Play); and The Uninvited (watch on HitBliss), scored by Christopher Young. Lakeshore Records is proud to have released the soundtracks to these films, including the new Walk of Shame Various Artists soundtrack (download the album on iTunes). Walk of Shame opens in theaters on Friday, but you can also catch the movie on demand via the movie’s Virtual Premiere.
If you’re looking for the one go-to soundtrack of the summer, then the Walk of Shame is a safe bet. The album is packed with solid, danceable tracks and catchy remixes of perennial favorites, “Walking In L.A.” (Motels remix by Scott Park and Corky James), and “Everybody Have Fun Tonight” (by Wang Chung).
Elizabeth Banks stars as May in Daltry Calhoun, a heartwarming story about a struggling golf club owner who meets his 14-year old daughter and learns to be a father for the first time. Definitely, Maybe stars Ryan Reynolds (as politician Will Hayes), Elizabeth Banks and Abigail Breslin (“Perfect Sisters“). Banks plays Emily, one of Will Hayes’ college sweethearts in this tale about a politician who tries to explain his past to his daughter.
