Best known for the romantic comedy Notting Hill and the pulp thriller Changing Lanes, Enduring Love is a gripping psychological drama from director Roger Michell. Based on the best-seller novel by Ian McEwan, the film tells the story of a couple whose lives interlock with an obsessive stranger after witnessing a tragic accident.
Enduring Love follows in the footsteps of last year’s equally provocative The Mother, also directed by Michell with a jazz-style score by Jeremy. After screenings at this year’s Venice and Toronto film festivals, Enduring Love is now on general release in the USA and UK, receiving good reviews for the cast's performance, Michell's direction and Jeremy's score:
“The score, by Jeremy Sams, has a looping pastoralism, at once expansive and troubled, that on occasion recalls the work of the great British film composer John Cameron. It also captures something of the essence of this clammy, devotional, unsettling film”
Sukhdev Sandhu – The Telegraph
“Jeremy Sams's score ranges from Vaughan Williams pastoral to Hammer horror melodramatic”
Philip French - The Observer
“Smart, spooky and elegant! A cool thriller! An intellectual investigation of love - successfully dramatizes Ian McEwan's novel!”
Carina Chocano - Los Angeles Times
