Laura Smiles

RKO Pictures, 2006. Directed by Jason Ruscio, Starring Petra Wright, Kip Purdue, Jonathan Silverman.

Very well received at the TriBeCa Film Festival, Laura Smiles won Best Film at the Vail Film Festival. The score consists mostly of bowed vibraphone and mixing bowls of various sizes played with soft mallets — that’s really it. Although vary bare, the music suited the story of a suburban housewife who slowly loses her mind and retreats into her past.
