Balancing the varying moods of homesickness, first love, new beginnings, and difficult goodbyes, John Crowley’s “Brooklyn” is a tender look at the immigrant experience. And helping to unify the film’s themes, and its blend of hopeful, melancholy, and romantic tones, is the lovely score by Michael Brook. And today we have an exclusive look at his work on the film from the man himself.
In this featurette, Brook humbly explains how he boarded the film, details his past work, and then how he approached the various moods and tenors required for “Brooklyn.” While his score may not have immediate flash, it’s genuinely sincere, carrying the emotions of the story gently, never overplaying the moment, walking hand in hand with the audience through the picture’s shifting tides.
The soundtrack is now available on CD and digitally, and “Brooklyn” is currently playing in limited release. Watch below.
