Award winning composer Christopher Lennertz creates a comedic, heartwarming score for the Lionsgate film Thanks for Sharing, in theaters September 20, 2013. Directed by Stuart Blumberg and starring Mark Ruffalo and Gwyneth Paltrow, Thanks for Sharing follows Adam, a five year sober sex addict who struggles with his sobriety when a new girlfriend enters his life. While mentoring a young addict new to the program, Adam must battle his own temperance. Lennertz recently scored the number one comedy Identity Thief. This fall, he returns to score the second season of NBC's Revolution and his ninth consecutive season of the CW's Supernatural both for producer Eric Kripke with whom he attended USC. Thanks for Sharing - Soundtrack Album and Thanks for Sharing - Original Score will be available on Milan Records September 17, 2013.
Thanks director Stuart Blumberg stated, "Christopher Lennertz's score brought a heart and an emotional resonance, which elevated my film in lovely and unexpected ways." Creating an instrument palette of a vintage Steinway piano, cello, guitar, and mellotron, Lennertz's score resonates with the simplicity similar to the advice given to individuals part of a 12 step program. "With its elegant and simple phrasing, the score beautifully communicates the emotional feelings I wanted to leave the audience with," said Blumberg.
Christopher Lennertz is currently scoring Ride Along, set to be released next year, and he recently scored Battle of the Year opening in September.
