The multi-talented Maggie Gyllenhaal makes her recording debut with several outstanding performances alongside tracks from Calexico for award-winning writer-director Don Roos' quirky new film HAPPY ENDINGS. The release also features songs by Greyboy and the Black Heart Procession. As intertwining storylines weave the lives of assorted characters together throughout the film, this eclectic line-up of music sets the stage for each story. Maggie Gyllenhaal, who also stars in HAPPY ENDINGS, sings three songs on the soundtrack including Billy Joel's "Just the Way You Are" plus two original tunes. Gyllenhaal's breakthrough performance in the provocative, controversial film SECRETARY earned her a Golden Globe nomination for best actress, and put her on the map as a gifted and acclaimed talent. Since then, she has appeared a number of films including ADAPTATION, CONFESSIONS OF A DANGEROUS MIND and MONA LISA SMILE, as well as the Tony Kushner play Homebody/Kabul. Tucson, Arizona-based Calexico's musical roots are planted in Southwestern American and Mexican culture, and soak up influence through the Americas, Africa and around the world. Since 1996, their mellow, desert-rock sounds have found a growing fanbase, and collaborations include work with musicians such as Richard Buckner, Lisa Germano, Vic Chesnutt, Neko Case and Victoria Williams. Warner. 2005.
