Director Todd Phillips’ ground-breaking 2019, award-winning film, Joker, will be screened with the accompaniment of a live orchestra playing composer Hildur Guðnadóttir’s award-winning score. Central to the emotional journey of the protagonist Arthur Fleck (Joaquin Phoenix) is Guðnadóttir’s beautiful haunting music. The LA Times calls it “One of the strongest scores of the year."
“You can see why Todd Phillips, the director of Joker, was drawn to Hildur Guðnadóttir’s music. Elegiac and ghostly, with a dark, yearning heart, the score by the 37-year-old Icelandic composer suits Phillips’s character study of a troubled, broken man perfectly.”
“One of the strongest scores of the year might also be the simplest — as well as the most integral to how the movie was made.”
