Freestyle Releasing is opening the edgy thriller Nobel Son in theaters tomorrow (Friday, Dec. 5th), and to celebrate the release, producers are providing Film Fetish with a copy of the film’s thumpin’ soundtrack featuring songs by Paul Oakenfold, Cristal Method and Chemical Brothers.
Nobel Son looks good, but the soundtrack seems like it will definitely rock.
Directed by Randall Miller (Bottle Shock) and written and produced by Miller and Jody Savin, Nobel Son is a venomous tale of familial dysfunction, lust, betrayal and ultimately revenge. Barkley Michaelson (Bryan Greenberg) is struggling to finish his Ph.D. thesis when his father, the learned Eli Michaelson (Alan Rickman), wins the Nobel Prize for Chemistry. But Eli’s past indiscretions begin to collide with the present. When Barkley is kidnapped on the eve of his father accepting the prize, Eli refuses to pay the ransom. So starts a game of intrigue and deception that proves that payback’s a bitch.
Nobel Son stars Alan Rickman as the deliciously contemptuous Eli Michaelson, Bryan Greenberg, Shawn Hatosy, Mary Steenburgen, Bill Pullman, Ernie Hudson, Ted Danson, Eliza Dushku and Danny DeVito. The film features original music from composer Paul Oakenfold with tracks from Spitfire, Chemical Brothers and Groove Armada.
So how do you win you ask? You guessed it. Two simply steps:
- Sign up for the daily newsletter, so you’ll get the first word on all future contests, as well as film news, filmmaker resources and much more. CLICK HERE to sign up.
- Reply to this story, and tell us the title of two films – one that has a memorable soundtrack, AND one that has a great musical score. Some real obvious answers here, so try to be creative. I’ll start this one off. The 2001 documentary Scratch, directed by Doug Pray, had a great soundtrack, and Star Wars: A New Hope, had a soundtrack that I can listen to over and over.
I’ll run this contest through next Friday, December 12th 2008. Good Luck, and go support the film, if it’s showing near enough. If you enjoyed Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels and Snatch, this looks like it has a similar vibe…my kinda film.
