Plot Synopsis:
On September 11, 2001, the world watched in terror. On September 12, 2001, they volunteered to figh.
Set in the harrowing days following 9/11, a U.S. Special Forces team, led by their new Captain, Mitch Nelson (Chris Hemsworth), is chosen to be the first U.S. troops sent into Afghanistan for an extremely dangerous mission. There, in the rugged mountains, they must convince Northern Alliance General Dostum (Navid Negahban) to join forces with them to fight their common adversary: the Taliban and their Al Qaeda allies. In addition to overcoming mutual distrust and a vast cultural divide, the Americans—accustomed to state-of-the-art warfare—must adopt the rudimentary tactics of the Afghani horse soldiers. But despite their uneasy bond, the new allies face overwhelming odds: outnumbered and outgunned by a ruthless enemy that does not take prisoners.

Plot Synopsis:
Tensions mount for the beleaguered British Prime Minister Winston Churchill (Brian Cox) in the days leading up to infamous Allied D-Day landings in Normandy, France in June, 1944. Fearful of repeating his deadly mistakes from World War I in the Battle of Gallipoli, exhausted by years of war, plagued by depression and obsessed with his historical destiny, Churchill is reluctant to embark on the large-scale campaign, one that the entire war effort hinges upon. Clashing with his Allied political opponents U.S. General Dwight D. Eisenhower (John Slattery) and British Field Marshal Bernard Law Montgomery (Julian Wadham), the troubled Churchill receives support and devotion from his wife (Miranda Richardson), the brilliant and unflappable Clementine Churchill. With her strength and shrewdness, ‘Clemmie’ halts Winston’s physical, mental spiritual collapse and inspires him on to greatness.

“I am proud of this score because it gave me an opportunity to explore the minds of these characters who had just returned from the crusades. Knowing that the Knights Templars during that time in history would have been exposed to various types of music, including Middle Eastern, Western, and Celtic instrumentation, I was challenged to write a score that was ethnically accurate and not overly westernized and glorified.
While scoring this film I was able to collaborate with a multitude of diversely talented and highly respected musicians including: Irish singer/song writer Paul Brady, Internationally acclaimed- Carnyx musician John Kenny, and the popular German band Corvus Corax. The one musical connection for the period of time that this film portrayed and present day is the concept of a melody. That being said, trying to give this score a new approach as opposed to what the audience would normally expect was exciting and being able to use a palette of Medieval, Celtic, and Western tonality and instrumentation was exhilarating!”
