Noah Baumbach & His Movie Music To Be Featured On Tom Needham's SOUNDS OF FILM
On Sunday night, THE SOUNDS OF FILM's Tom Needham spoke to MARRIAGE STORY director, Noah Baumbach, about his latest film at the Hamptons International Film Festival. The film starring Scarlett Johansson and Adam Driver, features an original score by Randy Newman.
Noah Baumbach spoke to Tom Needham about the film's music, "It is sort of different for every movie, but on this one I work with Randy Newman. Now, I had worked with Randy on The MEYERWITZ STORY, but on that one it was just him on piano. For this one, I wanted something big like a "movie" movie score. I wanted something romantic, loving and warm. So, it was a way that I hadn't worked with Randy before, and he is one of the best at it."
Tom Needham asked him, "You wanted a big romantic score for a movie about divorce?
Baumbach replied, "Yeah, because I thought of it as a love story."
