The Rocket Post (Nigel Clarke / Michael Csányi-Wills)

Original score from the 2004 drama feature film directed by Stephen Whittaker, starring Ulrich Thomsen, Shauna Macdonald and Gary Lewis.

THE STORY: A German rocket scientist arrives on a small Scottish island in the mid 1930s. He’s there to run tests on a new type of rocket that is to be used for mail delivery between the island and the mainland. Initially he’s met with skepticism, but slowly the islanders come to like and trust him. One of the young women falls in love with him, but with WWII around the corner life gets complicated.

THE SCORE: The composers of the acclaimed orchestral scores for The Thief Lord and The Little Vampire, UK-based duo Nigel Clarke and Michael Csányi-Wills, has written a beautiful romantic score for the The Rocket Post, a British drama featuring Danish star Ulrich Thomsen, Shauna Macdonald and Gary Lewis. MovieScore Media proudly presents the official soundtrack release of this film’s first-rate score, performed by The Royal Philharmonic Orchestra and featuring an original song, ”Distant Shores”, sung by Mae McKenna. This is a real gem of a score and one that really had to be ”discovered”!
