Sony Music announces the release of THE GIFT (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) featuring the music of Danny Bensi and Saunder Jurriaans.
About THE GIFT:
Simon and Robyn are a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon’s high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn’t recognize Gordo at first, but after a series of uninvited encounters and mysterious gifts prove troubling, a horrifying secret from the past is uncovered after more than 20 years. As Robyn learns the unsettling truth about what happened between Simon and Gordo, she starts to question: how well do we really know the people closest to us, and are past bygones ever really bygones?
From the producer of “Whiplash” and “The Purge”, Jason Blum’s Blumhouse, comes a contemporary psychological thriller that marks the feature directorial debut of acclaimed actor and writer Joel Edgerton (“The Great Gatsby”, “Zero Dark Thirty”, “Warrior”), starring Jason Bateman, Rebecca Hall and Edgerton.
