Alt-J to score asylum seeker film

Brit-nominated band Alt-J have been signed up to create the soundtrack for a forthcoming film about the perils facing young asylum seekers.

The band - who landed last year's Mercury Prize for debut release An Awesome Wave - will score Leave To Remain, which is being directed by documentary-maker Bruce Goodison.

The quartet, who are up for three Brit Awards, were impressed by the script and Goodison's previous work, which includes a Bafta-winning production, 10 Days To War.

The director wrote his script for Leave To Remain - about teenagers arriving in the UK - while listening to the band's debut album.

"I was immediately charmed by the soulful nature of their music. It felt like the perfect accompaniment to the emotional journey of my characters," said Goodison.

The film, which features Toby Jones in the cast, is in post-production and was based on the real experiences of teenagers who come to the UK alone to start new lives.
