LOS ANGELES, CA (November 12, 2018)– Node Records is pleased to announce the release of Jocelyn Pook’s original motion picture score album for the critically acclaimed film The Wife. The soundtrack is now available through all major digital music platforms via Node Records.
Currently in worldwide theatrical release, the film stars Glenn Close, Jonathan Pryce, Christian Slater, and Elizabeth McGovern. Directed by Björn Runge, the film is an adaptation of Meg Wolitzer’s bestselling novel about a woman (Close) who questions her life choices as she travels to Stockholm with her husband (Jonathan Pryce), where he is to be honoured with the Nobel Prize for Literature.
Featuring a sublime score by Jocelyn Pook (Eyes Wide Shut, The Staircase) for piano and chamber orchestra, reviews have overwhelmingly recognized the primary role Pook’s music plays in creating the complex undercurrents and powerful, emotional atmospheres that Runge’s thriller demands.
"I am so pleased that the soundtrack of The Wife is finally going to be released alongside the film,” Jocelyn Pook remarks. “It was an absolute joy to work on a film with such depth and resonance for our times; a film with rich cinematography and with extraordinarily masterful yet understated performances. It was also wonderful to work with the director Björn Runge who was both inspiring and trusting.”
The soundtrack was executive-produced by Lucy Bright, Tracy McKnight, and Robert Thompson.
