Alexandre Desplat's The Ghost Writer
1-Mar-2010 - Varèse Sarabande has released the score for The Ghost Writer, the story of a former British Prime Minister, Adam Lang, who is holed up on an island off the Eastern seaboard of the U.S. in midwinter, writing his memoirs. When his long-standing aide drowns, a professional ghostwriter is sent out to help him finish the book. The anonymous ghost writer is quickly drawn into a political and sexual intrigue involving Lang’s wife, Ruth and his aide. Hanging over Lang is the threat of a war crimes trial and a mysterious secret from his past that threatens to jeopardize international relations. THE GHOST WRITER is based on the novel The Ghost written by best-selling author Robert Harris. It won the International Thriller Writers’ Award for best novel of 2008. Harris joined director Roman Polanski in adapting the book for the big screen. Academy Award nominee Alexandre Desplat has created a suspenseful and captivating work, which recalls the classic thriller scores of the legendary Bernard Herrmann.
