2 Music Playlists For The Divergent In You

If you lived in the futuristic world depicted in the movie, Divergent, where would you fit in?   Starring The Spectacular Now‘s Shailene Woodley who plays “Tris,” and Theo James who plays “Four,” it’s a dystopian story of a girl who doesn’t fit into societal factions and a boy who doesn’t want to be categorized.  Can you imagine what must be on their playlists to get them going?  We dug through the Lakeshore Records catalog of soundtracks and music albums to create a very “Tris” and “Four” playlist.  What songs would go on your playlist?

The Spectacular Now’s Shailene Woodley Stands Out In ‘Divergent’

Out this weekend: The Spectacular Now‘s Shailene Woodley stars in Divergent, a futuristic thriller set in the dystopian version of Chicago. People who do not fit into a distinct faction based on certain human virtues are marked “Divergent” and considered a threat to society.  Based on the books by Veronica Roth, the film is expected to land the #1 spot over the weekend.  After this weekend, do you think Shailene is going to be the new “It Girl” of the silver screen?

Shailene Woodley stars in The Spectacular Now

We love how Shailene represents the exuberence of youth and the un-jaded heart in both films.  Film score composer Rob Simonsen captures the essence of all the emotions of young love and living in the now for The Spectacular Now album.  Check out the soundtrack.  We think she’s a keeper.

Interview with The Spectacular Now composer Rob Simonsen

Check out this interview from FilmMusicMag.com with The Spectacular Now composer Rob Simonsen:

Simonsen’s subtly captivating music is totally in the headspace of these two characters, the hilarious boozy-brass opening of “Spectacular Now” gradually getting past the humor to reveal its drifting self in beautiful washes of melancholy melody. For “The Way Way Back,” an alternately lyrical and bouncy guitar-driven theme pushes Duncan out the door for his journey of water slide self-discovery, all while gentle, echoing chords and a piano show the dead-end his mom’s settled for with a passive-aggressive boyfriend.

Though each Simonsen score is character specific, they’re linked by an understated, highly melodic approach that links the films and their music as taking place in the same teen universe where quirky humor blends with the angst of invading adulthood. Their offbeat tones show that Simonsen has indeed learned well from time spent with Mychael Danna, a composer who set the bar for the musically offbeat with such scores as “The Ice Storm,” “The Sweet Hereafter” and “Little Miss Sunshine.” Fully teaming as composers for the quirky acoustical romance of “Management” and a surprisingly traditional orchestral approach that counted down the bittersweet “(500) Days of Summer).” While he’s remained just as busy with more grown-up concerns from a murderous heir in “All Good Things” to the cop family of TV’s “Bluebloods” and the ironic task of “Seeking A Friend for the End of the World,” “The Spectacular Now” and “The Way Way Back” represent the full graduation of Simonsen into Gen Y scoring as he translates the tunes its characters listen to into the entrancing scores of their lives.
