Winner of the Grand Jury Prize at the 2016 Venice International Film Festival, Nocturnal Animals, Tom Ford’s haunting romantic thriller has been hailed as “a tour de force” (The Independent). Academy Award nominees Amy Adamsand Jake Gyllenhaal star as a divorced couple discovering dark truths about each other and themselves in a story Variety calls and “an explosive tale of love, violence, and revenge.” The ensemble cast also includes Michael Shannon, Aaron Taylor-Johnson, Isla Fisher, Karl Glusman, Armie Hammer, Laura Linney, Andrea Riseborough, and Michael Sheen.
Nocturnal Animals marks the second film from writer/director Ford, and his second collaboration with composer Korzeniowski. Their first collaboration, A Single Man, earned Korzeniowski his first Golden Globe nomination for Best Score. The score was a breakout for the composer, earning him the prestigious Discovery Award at the 2010 Ghent Film Festival’s World Soundtrack Awards. Korzeniowski has described his latest score to Nocturnal Animals as “embracing two extremes, but switching their traditional genre characterization. The crime plot is scored as an intimate, personal story, while the psychological drama is treated as a thriller. The cold and detached intertwines with poignant and excruciating, the simple and intimate becomes grand and bold.”
The composer’s passionate and evocative compositions have been met with critical and industry acclaim. Korzeniowski earned another Golden Globe nomination for Madonna’s W.E., as well as a BAFTA Award and three Emmy Award nominations for his work on Showtime’s Penny Dreadful. In addition, he has created musical identities for some of the world’s most prestigious brands, including BMW-i Electric Vehicles and Tiffany & Co. His music has also been featured on the runways of major fashion designers around the world, including Gucci, Ralph Lauren, Boss, Carolina Herrera, Alberta Ferretti, and Tom Ford. His score to Ford’s latest film has The Hollywood Reporter stating “the tempestuous strings of Abel Korzeniowski’s lush score provide an additional ballsy flourish, explicitly nodding to Hitchcock and Sirk.”
