Gustavo Santaolalla has recently composed the original music for the upcoming coming-of-age drama The Tribes of Palos Verdes. The film is directed by Emmett & Brendan Malloy and stars Maika Monroe, Jennifer Garner, Milo Gibson, Elisabeth Rohm, Goran Visnjic, Justin Kirk, Noah Silver, Joely Fisher and Stevie Lynn Jones. The movie is based on Joy Nicholson’s YA novel and follows two teenagers who move to the beach community of Palos Verdes with their parents as their mother teeters on the brink of a nervous breakdown. Karen Croner (One True Thing, Admission) wrote the screenplay and is also producing the project with Robbie Brenner (Dallas Buyers Club, Escape Plan). The Tribes of Palos Verdes is expected to be released later this year.
As previously reported, Santaolalla (Brokeback Mountain, Babel) also has Thierry Klifa’s French drama Tout nous sépare coming up.
