Published Aug 31, 2011This year's Toronto International Film Festival already boasts a stellar selection of music-related movies, including documentaries about Neil Young, Paul McCartney, Pearl Jam and U2. Well here's one more film that music fans may want to check out next month: Lovely Molly, the Tortoise-scored flick from Blair Witch Project co-director Eduardo Sánchez.
In a statement [via Pitchfork], producer Gregg Hale explained, "Tortoise's music is able to morph and change in a way that really accentuates the twists and turns in the Lovely Molly story. We had tried to work together in 1999 (on Fox's short-lived Freakylinks TV series) and it didn't pan out, so I was thrilled to have another chance to collaborate with them."
The soundtrack was recorded by the band's own John McEntire at his Soma Electronic Music Studios. Luckily, Broken Social Scene didn't get in his way this time.
Lovely Molly is a supernatural horror about an ex-addict (Molly, played by Gretchen Lodge) who moves into her dead father's house with her new husband (Tim, played by Johnny Lewis). In the house, she struggles against painful memories and an evil spirit.
The film will be screen on September 14, 15 and 17. Go to the TIFF website for more details.
