FATHERS & DAUGHTERS is a love story between a father and daughter who live in Manhattan 25 years apart. The story moves back and forth between the 1980s where a famous novelist and widower struggles with mental illness as he tries to raise his 5-year old daughter; then it shows that daughter as a 30-year old woman in contemporary Gotham who battles her own demons that stem from that turbulent childhood.
“The entire movie takes place in two different timelines,” said Buonvino. “When Katie is a child, I approached the score in a more classical way of writing – you can hear that in the track ‘Father and Daughter’ used for the scene with the bicycle. For the adult scenes where she deals with the illness of her father (Russell Crowe) I used a combination of electronic music, the orchestra and a solo violin. The solo violin plays some harmonics.”
Voltage Pictures presents FATHERS & DAUGHTERS in theaters soon. The FATHERS & DAUGHTERS – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be available digitally October 23, 2015.
