The gliding strings, flowing woodwind, piano tinkles and acoustic strums marry perfectly with Gerwig’s coming-of-age exploration of identity, adulthood and the particular intimacy of mother-daughter relationships. – Noisey
We’re bringing back Lady Bird for this Throwback Thursday, in honor of another coming-of-age film, Booksmart! The film earned five Academy Award® nominations including Best Picture, Best Director, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress and Best Screenplay. Beanie Feldstein plays the lovable best friend to Saoirse Ronan’s “Lady Bird”, and in Booksmart, she is the best friend and co-star to Kaitlyn Dever (Laggies,Short Term 13). Make it a Beanie Feldstein double feature this weekend!
The film features score by Jon Brion, composer to some of Hollywood’s most memorable and beloved films (The Break-Up, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, Punch Drunk Love). Listen to his score below!
People who didn’t get a chance to catch Lady Bird in theaters can now stream Greta Gerwig’s heartwarming Academy Award-nominated film now at Amazon Prime! Fair warning: keep a box of tissues nearby. The film was one of the most celebrated film releases of 2017, starring Saoirse Ronan, Laurie Metcalf and Timothee Chalamet!
In this edition of Throwback Thursday, we’re tipping the proverbial hat to Lady Bird star, Saoirse Ronan! Her starring role in the Academy Award®-nominated Best Picture film, Brooklyn, is one of our favorites and showcases her talent in another period film. From the 1950s in Brooklyn to the 2000s in Sacramento, Saoirse’s talent shines through. If you’re a TNT subscriber, you can watch the film now through March 3!
Be sure to check out the soundtrack featuring the acclaimed score by Michael Brook, Canadian Grammy®– and Golden Globe®-nominated composer, plus hear some traditional Irish music and some classic ’50s American tunes on the Various Artists album.
Lady Bird, directed by Greta Gerwig, has received five (5) Academy Award® nominations, including Best Picture and Best Director. Congrats to everyone at Team Lady Bird! We couldn’t be more proud to be soundtrack partners on this acclaimed production! This is Lakeshore Records’ third consecutive year releasing the record to an Academy Award®-nominated Best Picture, and all three years with A24 (Room, Moonlight, Lady Bird). Congratulations to all the nominees this year!

Brion’s technique and execution are never in question, his cues tight and memorable, giving Lady Bird‘s recurring theme a slightly descending piano line that serves as the score’s melodic backbone. – Evan Sawdey, Popmatters
For a composer who has been around for a while (his film score creds include Magnolia, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and I Heart Huckabees), Jon Brion exhibits the same amount of gusto if not more for his new projects, notably when talking about his journey of scoringGreta Gerwig’s Golden Globe®-winning film, Lady Bird.
