Los Angeles, CA. (Top40 Charts/ CineMedia Promotions) - Lakeshore Records will release the soundtrack for THE GUITAR, available via iTunes and Amazon Digital on November 4th and in stores on November 11th. The soundtrack contains original music composed by David Mansfield (Transamerica, The Apostle, Heaven's Gate) and songs by Jonny Savarino, Phoebe Jean Dunne, Alap Momin, Deb Montgomery, and two songs by The Everyothers.

A founding member of the platinum selling group Bruce Hornsby and The Range, David Mansfield was signed to his first record deal at 16 as part of the group "Quacky Duck And His Barnyard Friends". Two years later Mansfield joined Bob Dylan's band, appearing on three of Dylan's studio albums. Mansfield's first foray into scoring for feature films was for the 1980 epic Heaven's Gate which led to his four-film collaboration with Michael Cimino. Since then he has composed for a wide range of films including Transamerica, Divine Secrets of the Ya-Ya Sisterhood (with T-Bone Burnett), Songcatcher, The Apostle, Year of the Dragon, and the Golden Globe winning made-for-TV movies Truman and A Streetcar Named Desire.

How would you behave if you had to confront your own mortality? Especially if you were young, in your twenties or early thirties, how would you react if you learned you had less than two months to live? These questions create the point of departure for Amy Redford's whimsical fairytale The Guitar, a thoroughly engaging almost mythological allegory that is fueled by the exceptional performance of Saffron Burrows and executed with style by its director.

One morning Mel, a mousy, harried New Yorker with a thankless job and an even-less-appealing boyfriend learns that the tumor in her throat is cancerous; the diagnosis is terminal, so it seems that both her job and her relationship are kaput. Rather than lying down and dying then and there, she embarks on an endless spree, the kind of self-indulgent wish fulfillment that we have all fantasized about. The film, which is based on a true story, was written by Amos Poe.
Sony Pictures Classics presents THE GUITAR in theaters on November 7, 2008. THE GUITAR original soundtrack on Lakeshore Records will be available via iTunes and Amazon Digital on November 4th and in stores on November 11th.
