‘WELCOME TO ME’ Worldwide Debut at TIFF
Our latest music supervision project makes it’s worldwide debut at TIFF today, featuring music by The Pixies, The Mills Brothers, Mrs. Miller, Donna Fargo, Murial Smith, Opposom, Shannon and the Clams, Margo Guryan, and Michael Farneti; with original songs by MC5’s Wayne Kramer.
Starring Kristen Wiig as Alice Klieg, a woman with borderline personality disorder who struggles to maintain even the facade of a normal, productive life such as a job, friendships and relationships while seeming to spend far too much of her time reciting along to videotaped reruns of “Oprah.” That is, until she wins $85 million in the lottery, stops taking her medication, moves into a casino hotel and hires a local infomercial production company to help her create a show about her and her life. The show includes reenactments, sometimes moments from childhood, sometimes events much more recent. Alice’s intentions are unclear to everyone but herself and place a strain on the few human connections she does have in her life.
The film, from Gary Sanchez Productions and Bron Studios, includes notable cast members: Linda Cardellini, Tim Robbins, Joan Cusack, Wes Bentley, Jennifer Jason Leigh and James Marsden.
Music supervision by Margaret Saadi Kramer and Rock Steady’s Sean Mulligan.
