Following the acclaimed scores for Stephen Daldry’s The Reader and horror movie Joshua, young composer Nico Muhly has composed the original music for Margaret, a drama written and directed by Kenneth Lonergan, the screenwriter behind Analayze This and Gangs of New York. Just like Joshua, Margaret will be released by Fox Searchlight. The film stars Anna Paquin, Matt Damon, Mark Ruffalo, Matthew Broderick and Jean Reno, and the story is about a bus accident and its effect on a young woman who witnessed it. 27-year old Nico Muhly, who is a protege of Philip Glass, is an eclectic composer who is writing for the concert stage, cinema and also works with pop artists such as Bj√∂rk and Rufus Wainwright.
