Horner's Iris released.
15-Jan-2002 - James Horner was faced with an unusual challenge when he composed the score for Iris, a film about Iris Murdoch's descent into Alzheimer's disease. In the movie, two actresses play the role of Murdoch, and scenes constantly shift between those showing the novelist as a young woman, played by Kate Winslet, and as an old, dying woman, played by Judi Dench. Horner solves the musical continuity problem of jumping backward and forward in time by writing solo violin parts, played by Joshua Bell, that echo Murdoch's emotions and tie the past and future together.
