If you were to live, die, repeat like Tom Cruise’s Edge of Tomorrow character, what would you do over and over again? BAFTA-winning Director Duncan Jones (Moon) takes us on a time-travelling ride in Source Code (watch it on VUDU), starring Jake Gyllenhaal (Zodiac, Donnie Darko). Lakeshore Records released the soundtrack to this critically-acclaimed movie, scored by Composer Chris Bacon (The Dark Knight, Blood Diamond). Expect to find a soundtrack filled with big orchestrals which underline every thrilling moment of this movie.
Gyllenhaal’s character, Colter Stevens, is a soldier who finds himself a part of a covert government computer program called “Source Code,” in which he gets to re-live the last 8 minutes of a man’s life over and over again in order to locate a Chicago commuter train bomber. He soon finds himself on a separate mission to save Christina Warren, played by Michelle Monaghan (Better Living Through Chemistry, Expecting). Source Code also stars Vera Farmiga (A&E’s Bates Motel) as Colleen Goodwin, an official from the Source Code operation who interfaces with Colter Stevens. It’s a small world: Composer Chris Bacon now scores the Bates Motel TV series.

This Mother’s Day, Lakeshore Records reflects on several movies which tell the story of four different moms: Expecting, starring Michelle Monaghan (Better Living Through Chemistry); Little Miss Sunshine, starring Abigail Breslin (Perfect Sisters); People Like Us, starring Elizabeth Banks (Walk of Shame); and The Kids Are All Right, starring Julianne Moore, Annette Bening and The Hunger Games‘ Josh Hutcherson. Lakeshore Records is proud to have released the movie soundtracks to these endearing films.
Expecting also stars Radha Mitchell as “Lizzie,” who has given up trying to conceive after years of trying with her husband, until her best friend Andie (played by Michelle Monaghan), gets pregnant unexpectedly. Little Miss Sunshine (rent it on iTunes) is about a dysfunctional family who races across the country in a VW bus to get their little girl (Abigail Breslin) into a beauty pageant finals. The Kids Are All Right is about a modern family coming to terms with their daughter going off to college (Mia Wasikowska) and their son trying to find his biological father (Mark Ruffalo). People Like Us stars Chris Pine who, while taking care of the affairs of his recently deceased father, discovers he has a long-lost sister (Elizabeth Banks).

A respectable small-town pharmacist (played by Sam Rockwell) delivers a prescription to a lonely trophy wife (played by Olivia Wilde). She takes him on a walk on the wild side, which includes extra-large martinis, uninhibited bedroom behavior and the illicit pleasures of the pharmacopeia he has access to in his store. Composers Andrew Feltenstein and John Nau (“Anchorman 2”; “Casa De Mi Padre”) load the soundtrack with whimsical, colorful, and jazzy tunes; not unlike what one might experience under the influence in this murderously dark comedy.
Better Living Through Chemistry also stars Michelle Monaghan (“Source Code“), Ray Liotta, Jane Fonda, as well as Ben Schwartz, Norbert Leo Butz and Ken Howard.
Olivia Wilde also stars in the following films: People Like Us (with Walk of Shame‘s Elizabeth Banks), Butter (with Draft Day‘s Jennifer Garner), The Girl Next Door (with The Motel Life‘s Emile Hirsch), Year One (with Superbad‘s Michael Cera), In Time (with Runner Runner‘s Justin Timberlake), The Words (with Hit & Run‘s Bradley Cooper) and Her (with Ain’t Them Bodies Saints‘ Rooney Mara). If you want to beef up on Olivia Wilde movie knowledge beyond her well-known roles in TRON: Legacy and TV’s The O.C., then this is a great place to start.
