Alexandre Desplat

Suffragette” (Focus)

The Danish Girl” (Focus)

Awards season nowadays means cineplexes get classed up with the music of Alexandre Desplat (who won his first Academy Award for 2014’s “The Grand Budapest Hotel”), and this year is no exception. Desplat has two fall films with “Oscar” written all over them: “Suffragette” and “The Danish Girl,” both socially conscious films about the plights of oppressed groups.

For “Suffragette,” directed by Sarah Gavron, Desplat wrote stoically martial music carried by a persistent drumbeat rhythm — “to show there’s a war going on that can never stop.”

“I had two older sisters,” he says, “so I’ve been raised more by women than men. I know the value of this equity, and how hard my mother fought for that. I know what women had to go through to get rid of these chains that were keeping them from being equal.”
