among all his Academy Award-nominated scores to classics like The Shawshank Redemption, Wall-E, Finding Nemo, Saving Mr.

Banks, and The Road to Perdition, his score to American Beauty remains newman’s most distinctive. That’s because Newman made the bold choice of composing a score almost entirely with percussion instruments, brilliantly intuiting that the lack of melodic resolution in the film’s themes would echo and amplify what he termed the “moral ambiguity” of the script. The result was a haunting and wholly original film score that is instantly recognizable to anyone who has seen the picture.
