'Last Night' is a 2010 romantic drama directed by Massy Dadjedin, featuring Keira Knightley, Sam Worthington, Eva Mendes and Guillaume Canet. The story follows a married couple, apart for a night when the husband takes a business trip with a colleague to whom he is attracted. While he is resisting temptation, his wife encounters her past love.

The score (surprisingly unavailable until now), is written by one of the most exciting composers of our time, Clint Mansell (the long time musical collaborator of director Darren Aronofsky - Requiem For A Dream, The Fountain, Black Swan, The Wrestler, Pi, and more). This beautiful, piano-driven score is finally available and features the end credit song 'Final Movement' composed by Clint Mansell and with vocals by cult singer-songwriter Peter Broderick.

The album is available on CD and 180g vinyl.

"Like the finest writing I've read, Clint's music grips unexpectedly and stays with you as long as it does in exactly the same way. Clint provided tone, shading, pacing and the indefinable otherness only music can." Massy Tadjedin, director.

“Don’t let the album’s relatively short length fool you: this is incredible, powerful music that runs through a whole range of emotions over the course of its runtime. Mansell wastes no time in this score’s seven track length, making a powerfully emotive case for his status as the best film composer alive.” Brice Ezell (read the full review at PopMatters)

"Soundtracks will eat themselves. His days as a member of PWEI now long behind him, Clint Mansell has become one of the most respected and scarily cool sound-track composers of the 21st Century, whose work on Darren Aronofsky's Pi and Requiem For A Dream redefined the way soundtracks work with the content of their host movie. Mansell's music for Last Night (a 2012 vehicle for Keira Knightley and Sam Worthington) is something of a sidebar to his bigger work, being a step outside his usual mixture of intense orchestral post-rock and intense moodiness, a collection of melancholy piano pieces that work just as well without the film. A slight collection, but excellent for all that." David Quantick - Uncut
