ORIGINAL SOUNDTRACK

SUFFRAGETTE (ALEXANDRE DESPLAT)

2LP
4P

On his score for Suffragette, Oscar-, BAFTA-, Golden Globe-, and Grammy-winning composer Alexandre Desplat offers un-nostalgic orchestral accompaniment to the film. A musical shape-shifter, here Desplat imparts the urgency at the heart of the film above all else, with unresolved chords, climbing progressions, and a pulsing low-end via, most prominently, percussion, strings, piano, and horns.

In early 20th-century Britain, the growing suffragette movement forever changes the life of working wife and mother Maud Watts (Carey Mulligan). Galvanized by political activist Emmeline Pankhurst (Meryl Streep), Watts joins a diverse group of women who fight for equality and the right to vote. Faced with increasing police action, Maud and her dedicated suffragettes must play a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse, risking their jobs, homes, family and lives for a just cause.

On his score for Suffragette, Oscar-, BAFTA-, Golden Globe-, and Grammy-winning composer Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel, The King's Speech) offers un-nostalgic orchestral accompaniment to the film. A musical shape-shifter, here Desplat imparts the urgency at the heart of the film above all else, with unresolved chords, climbing progressions, and a pulsing low-end via, most prominently, percussion, strings, piano, and horns.

From the gently ominous waltz of "Demonstration" to the trembling high-pitched strings of "Child Taken," the score is quiet but tense and, as always, well-suited.
