Edith has a lot to thank her latest guest on Soundtracking, who cheered her up no end during lockdown with his gloriously batty new comedy, Eurovision Song Contest: The Story Of Fire Saga. David Dobkin is a writer and director who brought us Shanghai Knights, The Wedding Crashers and The Judge, as well as numerous music videos for the likes of 2Pac and Maroon 5. This latest endeavour stars Will Ferrell, Rachel McAdams, Pierce Brosnan and Dan Stevens - and tells the story of an unlikely Icelandic pop duo who get the chance to represent their country at Eurovision. We absolutely loved it, and you can see why on Netflix right now.
In a unique weekly podcast, Edith Bowman sits down with a variety of film directors, actors, producers and composers to talk about the music that inspired them and how they use music in their films, from their current release to key moments in their career. The music chosen by our guests is woven into the interview and used alongside clips from their films. https://twitter.com/soundtrackinguk https://www.facebook.com/Soundtrackingwithedithbowman/ https://play.spotify.com/user/soundtrackingwithedithbowman https://itunes.apple.com/gb/playlist/soundtracking-with-edith-bowman-episode-132-mary-j-blige/pl.u-6mo4l9mhpzG6x
