A prolific Canadian composer whose most popular film might still be his scoring debut out of the slasher gate with 1982s VISITING HOURS, Jonathan Goldsmith has since written far more delicate works, especially for director Sarah Polley on AWAY FROM HER and STORIES WE TELL.

The same thing can be said for […]Read On »
