Lesley Barber is composing the music for the upcoming romantic drama Paper Year. The movie marks the directorial debut of writer Rebecca Addelman (New Girl, Love) and stars Eve Hewson, Avan Jogia, Andie MacDowell and Hamish Linklater. The movie centers on a newly married couple who encounter obstacles that reveal cracks in their relationship forcing them to question whether they made a fully formed decision. Addelman also wrote the screenplay. Christina Piovesan (Regression, Amreeka, The Whistleblower) is producing the project for First Generation Films, alongside Jennifer Shin. Paper Year is currently in post-production and is expected to premiere later this year.
As previously reported, Barber (Manchester by the Sea, You Can Count On Me) also has Boaz Yakin’s horror thriller Boarding School and the documentary A Better Man coming up.
