In 2008, Streitenfeld won the prestigious World Soundtrack Award’s “Discovery of the Year” at the Ghent International Film Festival.
For Welcome to the Rileys, Streitenfeld created a beautiful intimate score. This banjo-driven score ranges from a light and playful feel to a dark and intense, spooky tone. Streitenfeld played most of the instruments himself on the score. 'Jake Scott has a very sophisticated knowledge of music. It was a rewarding experience to work on the film,” says Streitenfeld.
Welcome to the Rileys is a powerful drama about finding hope in the most unusual of places. Once a happily married and loving couple, Doug and Lois Riley (James Gandolfini and Melissa Leo) have grown apart since losing their teenage daughter eight years prior. Leaving his agoraphobic wife behind to go on a business trip to New Orleans, Doug meets a 17-year-old runaway (Kristen Stewart) and the two form a platonic bond. For Lois and Doug, what initially appears to be the final straw that will derail their relationship, turns out to be the inspiration they need to renew their marriage.
Looking to get away, Doug goes on a business trip to New Orleans. He meets Mallory (Kristen Stewart), a teenage runaway. The opportunity to care and protect Mallory supplants the void Doug's marriage has left in his heart, and brings new meaning to his life. Doug decides to sell his business and stay in New Orleans to give Mallory the attention and help she can't bring herself to ask for. Lois overcomes her phobia and ventures to New Orleans to reclaim her marriage. What initially seems to be the final straw that will derail their marriage turns out to be the inspiration for Lois and Doug to renew their love for each other.
