Writer, Director, and Composer Sally Potter’s The Roads Not Taken follows a day in the life of Leo (Javier Bardem) and his daughter, Molly (Elle Fanning) as she grapples with the challenges of her father’s chaotic mind. As they weave their way through New York City, Leo’s journey takes on a hallucinatory quality as he floats through alternate lives he could have lived, leading Molly to wrestle with her own path as she considers her future. Premiered at the Berlin International Film Festival, The Roads Not Taken will make its theatrical debut March 13 via Bleecker Street.
Writing music for film is an extension of the script-writing process for Potter. The stunning string-layered score for The Roads Not Taken features performances by long-term collaborator and guitarist Fred Frith, violinist Viktoria Mullova, cellist Matthew Barley, percussionist Paul Clarvis and bassist Misha Mullov-Abado.
