Todd Phillips’ Joker, winner of 'Best Actor' and 'Best Original Score' at the Academy Awards will be screened with the accompaniment of a live orchestra playing composer Hildur Guðnadóttir’s award-winning score.
Central to the emotional journey, Joaquin Phoenix’s character Arthur Fleck takes throughout the movie is Guðnadóttir’s beautifully haunting, Golden Globe, BAFTA and Academy Award-winning score. The fusion of looming industrial soundscapes with raw, emotive string-led melodies - led by a lone cello - creates a melancholic shroud pinpricked with moments of hope, which unfolds gradually to become a fever pitch of disquieting tension.
This extraordinary music will be brought to life by a full orchestra to create a vivid, visceral and entirely new Joker experience. Performed live, Guðnadóttir’s inimitable score illuminates further the emotional weight, texture and atmosphere of Phoenix’s captivating portrayal.
