Then we have the new coming-of-age film in the vein of "Sixteen Candles" and "The Breakfast Club"; Edge Of Seventeen. With tracks by Anderson .Paak, Santigold, Two Door Cinema Club, Birdy, Phantogram and many more we expect nothing less than a success for this new motion picture film.
And last but not least we have Ewan McGregor's directorial debut in the film American Pastoral. The score is composed by Alexandre Desplat, who is not unfamiliar as he composed films like The Secret Life Of Pets, The Light Between Oceans, Godzilla, Harry Potter & The Deathly Hallows and Suffragette.

Originally released in 1972, It's Just Begun set the tone for The Jimmy Castor Bunch's success through an effective and distinctive mix of funk, pop hooks, social commentary, and gonzo comedy. The album also helped the group score a million-selling crossover hit single with "Troglodyte". In the United States the track peaked at #6 in the Billboard Hot 100. It was a million seller by June 1972 and received a gold disc award from the RIAA.
The Edge of Seventeen is a new coming-of-age movie in the vein of Sixteen Candles and The Breakfast Club - an honest, candid, often hilarious look at what it's like to grow up as a young woman in today's modern world.
American Pastoral is a 2016 American crime-drama film directed by Ewan McGregor, making his directorial debut, and written by John Romano, based on the 1997 novel of the same name. The film stars McGregor, Jennifer Connelly, Dakota Fanning a.o.
Jerry Cantrell is an American musician who is best known as the lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist and main songwriter for the rock band Alice in Chains. He also has a solo career and released the albums Boggy Depot in 1998 and Degradation Trip in 2002.
The album's grungy heaviness is balanced, however, by moody acoustic ballads such as the somber "Angel Eyes". Serene, tangy guitar riffs featured in the likes of "Gone" elude more to Cantrell's Southern roots.
