Dear Frankie

Alex Heffes

One of the most beloved Scottish films of all time, director Shona Auerbach’s unabashedly sentimental 2004 family love story was also an unqualified festival favorite, earning numerous accolades for Auerbach as well as for stars Emily Mortimer, Gerard Butler and ten-year-old Jack McElhone as the deaf son of a single mother who would do anything to give her son a father.

Leaning heavily on the story’s Scottish setting, English composer Alex Heffes (
The Last King of Scotland) incorporates a gentle but unmistakable Gaelic influence, embracing the chord structure and rhythms of folk ballads to help emphasize the characters’ interior journeys as much as their outward relationships. Beginning with a series of soft cues for solo piano ("Stamp Album") Heffes gradually increases the richness of the underlying orchestration, incorporating strings and woodwinds ("Hilltop"), and even guitar ("Skimming") as young Frankie grows to embrace the comparable richness and natural harmonies of life itself.
