"I feel like it’s truly an inspired work," music supervisor Bruce Gilbert says of the Spektor song in a statement. "I loved this song when I first heard it, but I loved it even more once I got to hear and see how beautifully it impacted our main titles. There’s an immediate urgency to it that gives way to an emotion that breathes even more life into the stunning portraits of the prisoners."
