Mica Levi (Micachu) scored upcoming Jacqueline Kennedy biopic starring Natalie Portman (listen to a track)
Mica Levi, of Micachu and the Shapes, has scored a new film, her second outing as a composer following her stunning work on Jonathan Glazer's Under The Skin back in 2014. The movie in question is Jackie, a biopic of first lady Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis (played by Natalie Portman) by Chilean director Pablo Larrain. The film has already played at various festivals (including NYFF) and has drawn rave reviews. The film also stars Peter Sarsgaard, Greta Gerwig, Billy Crudup, and John Hurt, and comes out on December 2.
In advance of that, you can catch the first preview of the soundtrack, which out the same day on Milan Records. It's a lovely, haunting piece of music called "Children," and you can listen to it here:
