Lakeshore Records Releases THE PORTABLE DOOR Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, Music By Benjamin Speed

The Portable Door is an MGM+ original comedy film starring multi-time Golden Globe nominee Sam Neill (PETER RABBIT, JURASSIC PARK) and Patrick Gibson (THE OA, TOLKIEN), joining two-time Academy Award winner Christoph Waltz (DJANGO UNCHAINED, NO TIME TO DIE) and Sophie Wilde (EDEN, YOU DON’T KNOW ME). The award-winning Jeffrey Walker (ALI’S WEDDING, LAMBS OF GOD) directed the film, which is adapted by Leon Ford (GRIFF THE INVISIBLE) from Tom Holt’s popular seven-book fantasy series.

The 2023 Australian fantasy film movie centers on Paul Carpenter (Gibson) and Sophie Pettingel (Wilde), lowly, put-upon interns who begin working at the mysterious London firm J.W. Wells & Co., and become increasingly aware that their employers are anything but conventional. Charismatic villains Humphrey Wells (Waltz), the CEO of the company, and middle manager Dennis Tanner (Neill) are disrupting the world of magic by bringing modern corporate strategy to ancient magical practices, and Paul and Sophie discover the true agenda of the vast corporation.

The music is from Australian composer Benjamin Speed, known for 52 TUESDAYS, MONOLITH, AFTERTASTE (TV series), EMBRACE: THE DAY. Notes composer Speed: “When I was born, I was named by my brother and sister after Beatrix Potter’s The Tale of Benjamin Bunny and Peter Rabbit. From day one I’ve been a dreamer and my dreams are a big influence on me. As a teenager they began to literally manifest in my waking consciousness which has immensely shaped my creative style and life philosophy. I use dreams to gather ideas and refine my music, as well as to help guide my most important life choices. Ultimately my greatest wishes are to transcend time and space by going inside my own mind, and to have the music I created shot out into space as one of the examples of human artistic endeavor.”

The soundtrack album can be purchased or streamed here.
