MovieScore Media will release a soundtrack album for the British comedy The Man in the Hat. The album features the film’s original music written by Academy Award-winning composer Stephen Warbeck (Shakespeare in Love, Quills, Billy Elliott, Proof, Captain Corelli’s Mandolin) who has made his feature directorial debut on the project. The soundtrack will be released digitally tomorrow, September 25 and will be available to stream/download on Amazon and other digital music stores. Quartet Records will release a CD version (click here to order on Amazon). The Man in the Hat is co-written and directed by Warbeck & John Paul Davidson and stars Ciarán Hinds, Stephen Dillane and Maïwenn. The movie tells the story of a man journeying through France in a Fiat 500, chased by five angry men in a Citroën Dyane.

    Just the best film of 2019/20 and beyond. A total delight.

  2. Pete says:

    Absolutely loved it!

  3. Liz says:

    We loved it! Such a relaxing, amusing film once we got used to the idea that it wasn’t going to be action packed… How wonderful!. But I can’t find who the female trio in the car were. Slight memories of Jacques Tatie (I’m sure that is wrong spelling – apologies)

      I had this reply from The Man in the Hat re: all the little things song
      “ Yes that’s Mathilda Homer, the director’s daughter! She signed with a major record label just after we filmed so we’ve not been able to release the track yet, but it’s coming… 🙏”

        Brilliant – I’ve been waiting to hear about that track.

  4. Isadora says:

    Great film! However I have been trying to find the song sung by mathilda Homer (little things, smallest things) and can not find it anywhere! I absolutely love this song and would love a recording to be released!

  5. David Lewis says:

    So where are the three English language songs, one sung by a trio in the car? Not even a credit…
