Scottish composer PATRICK DOYLE is a graduate of the Scottish Royal Academy of Music and Drama and was an actor, music teacher and musical director in the early part of his career. Doyle first began film composition for Kenneth Branagh with "Henry V" and went on to work with him as composer for six additional films. ("Hamlet" was Doyle's second Academy Award® nominated score). He has worked with a variety of distinguished directors: Robert Altman ("Gosford Park"), Brian DePalma ("Carlito's Way"), Alfonso Cuarón ("A Little Princess") Ang Lee ("Sense and Sensibility," his first Academy Award® nomination) and Régis Wargnier ("Indochine" and "Est-Ouest"). "The Galíndez Mystery" (El Mysterio Galíndez) for Gerardo Herrero was released in summer 2003. His latest project, along with "Secondhand Lions" for writer-director Tim McCanlies, is "Calendar Girls" for Nigel Cole, both to be released in the Fall 2003. Doyle received Composer of the Year in 2002 at Ghent.

Opening September 26th, "Secondhand Lions" follows the comedic adventures of an introverted boy named Walter (Haley Joel Osment) whose mother, Mae (Kyra Sedgwick), dumps him off, in the midst of a young life marked by broken promises, to spend the summer with his cranky, eccentric great uncles, played by Robert Duvall and Michael Caine. The subtext involves tales of faraway places, the French Foreign Legion and rescue of a beautiful woman from the clutches of an evil sheik, giving Doyle the opportunity to compose four distinctive themes. Rated PG, 107 minutes.
