Martin Simmonds (Tim Roth) has been haunted throughout his life by the mysterious disappearance of his “brother” and extraordinary best friend, a Polish Jewish virtuoso violinist, Dovidl Rapaport, who vanished shortly before the 1951 London debut concert that would have launched his brilliant career. Thirty-five years later, Martin discovers that Dovidl (Clive Owen) may still be alive, and sets out on an obsessive intercontinental search to find him and learn why he left.
PG-13 | 113 min
SCL Advisory Board member Howard Shore’s music is performed in concert halls around the world by the most prestigious orchestras and is heard in cinemas across the globe. Shore’s musical interpretation of J.R.R. Tolkien’s imaginative world of The Lord of the Rings, and The Hobbit, as portrayed in the films directed by Peter Jackson, have enthralled people of all generations for years. This work stands as his most acclaimed composition to date awarding him with three Academy Awards®, four Grammys®, two Golden Globes®, as well as numerous critics and festival awards.

Shore was one of the original creators of Saturday Night Live and served as music director from 1975-1980. At the same time, he began collaborating with David Cronenberg and has since scored fifteen of the director’s films, including The Fly, Crash, and Naked Lunch. He was awarded Canadian Screen Awards for Maps to the Stars for score, and Cosmopolis for both score and song. His original scores to A Dangerous Method, Eastern Promises, and Dead Ringers were each honored with a Genie Award. Shore continues to distinguish himself with a wide range of projects, including five films with Martin Scorsese: Hugo, The Departed, The Aviator (for which he won his third Golden Globe®), Gangs of New York, and After Hours. His other credits include Ed Wood, Se7en, The Silence of the Lambs, Philadelphia, Mrs. Doubtfire, and the score for Tom McCarthy’s Academy Award®-winning film Spotlight.

His opera, The Fly, which premiered at the Théâtre du Châtelet in Paris and at Los Angeles Opera, recently completed a successful run in Germany at Theatre Trier. His other works include: Fanfare for the Wanamaker Organ in Philadelphia, the piano concerto Ruin and Memory for Lang Lang, the cello concerto Mythic Gardens, the song cycle A Palace Upon the Ruins, Sea to Sea, the song cycle L’Aube, a Latin Mass, and The Forest for guitarist Miloš, that premiered in 2019.
