Accompanying the films remarkable story of Philomenas extraordinary search for her long lost son, is composer Alexandre Desplats emotionally riveting score which evokes the compelling narrative of human love and loss that ultimately celebrates life, showing that there is laughter even in the darkest places. Desplats wide usage of instruments gives the film its emotional resonance with both enchantment and a beautifully touching heart.
Alexandre Desplats score runs a wide spectrum of poignant and dramatic tones, perfectly complimenting the films touching story of a quest filled with laughter and joy that is often underpinned by sadness. The original motion score for Philomena marks the latest collaboration between Desplat and director Stephen Frears, with Desplat having previously created the score for Frears 2006 Academy-nominated film The Queen.
