Matthew Vaughn's 2007 fantasy Stardust, based on the novel by acclaimed author Neil Gaiman, was one the highest grossing films in the UK. An instant hit with fans of fantasy and science-fiction films, Stardust features an all-star cast including Robert De Niro, Michelle Pfeiffer, and Ian McKellan. The contemporary score was by rising British composer Ilan Eshkeri, and won the International Film Music Critics Association award for 'Best Original Score.' Eshkeri was also named Best New Composer of 2007 and has been called "one of the most exciting new composers to emerge in recent years." As with the other books in this series, Sapiro provides an overview of Eshkeri's music, examines the composer's techniques, and explores the music in the context of the film. This book is distinguished from previous Film Score Guides by the author's privileged and complete access to the composer.
