The Pretty One Julian Wass

Jenée LaMarque's "The Pretty One" is a film we were charmed by all the way back in 2013 when we first saw it at the Tribeca Film Festival. And of the many elements that caught our attention was the "gauzy, dreamy" score by Julian Wass. And the good news is, in addition to the film coming to VOD soon, the soundtrack will also be available shortly to spin at home too.

Starring Zoe Kazan and Jake Johnson, the film follows the shy, awkward Laurel, who gets the opportunity to step into her twin sister Audrey's much more confident personality and life when Audrey is tragically killed. It's a quirky concept on the page, but one that really works when put into action, and for Wass, it was a Disney movie that served as his entry point for working on "The Pretty One."

“Around the same time as we started envisioning the score for 'The Pretty One,' Jenée and I showed 'Cinderella' to our then 3-year-old daughter for the first time. The song, 'A Dream is a Wish Your Heart Makes' embodies Cinderella’s character and spirit," Wass said. "The song has an especially wonderful melody and chord change that accompanies the lyric, 'No matter how your heart is grieving, if you keep on believing.' I felt that Cinderella and the character of Laurel had some interesting parallels, so I studied that chord change and melody and used it as inspiration for one of the main themes for the 'The Pretty One.' ”

"The Pretty One" hits VOD on June 3rd, and the soundtrack will be available digitally the same day. Below you can check out "Twin Beds" and "Mr. And Mrs. Brown (Love Theme From The Pretty One)."
