Soundtracking with Edith Bowman
Episode 106: Bart Layton On The Music Of American Animals (Contains Mild Spoilers)
Our latest edition of Soundtracking features British writer / director Bart Layton.
Bart won widespread critical acclaim for his debut The Imposter, a documentary about the case of the French conman Frédéric Bourdin, who impersonated a Texas boy who disappeared at the age of 13 in 1994.
His new film is also inspired by an extraordinary true story about a group of ordinary everyday guys who plan to steal the most expensive book in America. Unlike The Imposter, though, it's predominantly a work of 'based on real events' fiction, with great performances by all of the actors in the central roles.
It also features a banging soundtrack and excellent score by Anne Nikitin.
