Based on the best-selling memoir A Long Way Home by Saroo Brierly, Lion looks into the life of an Indian boy who was adopted and raised in Australia. Twenty years later, he decides to seek out his biological family. The film's soundtrack consists mostly of an original score rooted in poignant piano and strings. It also includes "Never Give Up," a song written and performed for the movie by Australian pop icon Sia that, unlike the rest, tips its hat to Bollywood. The 45-minute score is the result of a collaboration between two composers known at least as well for their work outside of film as for their soundtrack output. Hauschka (Volker Bertelmann) is an experimental musician recognized for his work with prepared piano, and Dustin O'Halloran, also a pianist in the art-music sphere, is a member of dream pop band the Devics. They both have growing film résumés, though, with Hauschka having scored the indie horror film The Boy, and O'Halloran having won an Emmy for his theme for Transparent, both in 2015. Lion's director, Garth Davis, approached Hauschka about writing the music, at the same time suggesting O'Halloran for the second half of the film. The pair, who were already friends, were eager to work together and soon scrapped the idea of dividing up the assignment. Arpeggiated piano and atmospheric strings mark their "Lion Theme," which reappears regularly throughout, sometimes switching up instrumentation and context. Also early in the track list, "Lost (Part One)" emphasizes anxiety with irregular, clattering percussion and dissonant tremolos on strings. As with the rest of the score, though, it stays within a low dynamic range, all to serve the quiet sorrow of an emotional story that comes to terms with different forms of loss.

WES SIDE STORIES: The best musical moments in Wes Anderson’s films

Anderson's films can be polarizing: Charming or cloying, depending on your point of view. But if you're a fan, you no doubt appreciate the director's (and frequent collaborator, music supervisor Randall Poster's) obvious love of music—some of it as well known as Paul Simon or the frequently used Rolling Stones; some of it if-you-know-you-know cult classics.

The Stylish Henry Mancini

Sophistication, humour, sensitivity… These are the words that often come to mind when describing Henry Mancini’s music. 23 years after his death, he is still seen as a major and influential pop composer. No doubt because, in addition to his glossy and light works for which he is renowned (notably Breakfast at Tiffany’s and The Pink Panther), he also knew how to display the complexity of his musical language in more tormented compositions.

John Barry, The Genius Jack of All Trades

Composing for the screen demands a taste and a skill for all styles: from disco for a nightclub scene, to a madrigal for a period drama, the cinema musician has to be ready for anything. And John Barry (1933 - 2011) was surely one of the greatest soundtrack composers, and one who was able to immerse himself fully into all genres of music and film.
