Featuring Original Music By John Debney
(March 24, 2015 – Los Angeles, CA) – Lakeshore Records will release BROKEN HORSES – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack digitally on April 7th and on CD May 5, 2015. The album features the film’s original score by John Debney (HOUDINI, THE PASSION OF THE CHRIST). BROKEN HORSES was written, produced and directed by Vidhu Vinod Chopra, marking the first time a filmmaker from India has done so.
“Having been a huge fan of Mr. Chopra’s work, I was absolutely thrilled when asked to do the score for Broken Horses,” said Debney. “Working with Vinod Chopra was one of the highlights of my career.”
Having left town as a child after the death of his father, young music prodigy, Jacob Heckum (Anton Yelchin), returns to his desolate hometown after years only to discover that Buddy (Chris Marquette), the child-like elder brother he left behind, now works for a notorious drug gang. The gang’s ruthless boss has twisted Buddy’s simple mind and manipulated him into a killer, a surrogate son who blindly does as he is told. Jacob is unable to convince Buddy to leave his new fraternity. Drowned in guilt for having abandoned him, Jacob realizes the only way to save Buddy is from the inside out. Set in the shadows of the turbulent American-Mexican border Broken Horses is a gritty, epic thriller about bonds of brotherhood, laws of loyalty, and the futility of violence.
“Broken Horses is a tour de force of brilliant filmmaking and stellar acting,” Debney described. “The attention to detail and passion shown by Vinod was infectious and inspiring. I hope to work with Vinod again and would treasure the opportunity.”
Vinod Chopra Films and Reliance Entertainment present BROKEN HORSES in theaters on April 10, 2015. BROKEN HORSES – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally on April 7th and on CD May 5, 2015.
