David Newman is composing the music for the upcoming drama Ruth & Alex. The movie is directed by Richard Loncraine and stars Morgan Freeman, Diane Keaton, Michael Cristofer, Cynthia Nixon, Claire Vanderboom, Korey Jackson, Carrie Preston, Sterling Jerins, Josh Pais and Miriam Shor. The film follows a long-married couple during an eventful weekend after they are forced to contemplate selling their beloved Brooklyn apartment.

This film may not get a wide release, but it's gratifying that Newman is getting to work on something with a bit of dramatic heft to it.

Yep. Always good to see him scoring a film. Even better that it's a change from the lame comedies he's scored in the past.
I would be quite happy for him to keep going to Europe to score their animated adventures (like Animals United and Tarzan) and score low-key dramas or indie efforts in his homeland.
Every one must also get a CD release, mind.

According to IMDB the movie is called LIFE ITSELF and there is no composer mentioned so far.
Sounds like an interesting project for Newman. Definetely more interesting than stuff like BEHAVING BADLY.
