Sara Quin of Tegan And Sara has composed her first film score for actress Clea Duvall’s directorial debut The Intervention, which premiered today at the Sundance Film Festival, The Wrap reports. “It was an incredibly exciting opportunity to score Clea Duvall’s excellent film,” Quin says. “The greatest challenge for me was ensuring I wasn’t diminishing the impact of the clever and heartfelt dialogue spoken throughout. I enjoyed trying to marry my own pop aesthetic to a more organic instrumentation that felt appropriate to the film, and I learned a lot about subtraction and ‘less is more.'” The Intervention follows four couples who plan a weekend getaway in an attempt to stage a “marriage intervention,” and the film stars Duvall herself alongside Melanie Lynskey, Cobie Smulders, Natasha Lyonne, Vincent Piazza, Jason Ritter, Ben Schwartz, and Alia Shawkat.
