The soundtrack also features original compositions from GRAMMY® award winning composer and frequent Burton collaborator, Danny Elfman along with music fromMiles Davis & Sonny Rollins, Red Garland Trio and The Lively Ones.

From the whimsical mind of director Burton, BIG EYES tells the outrageous true story of one of the most epic art frauds in history. In the late 1950s and early 1960s, painter Walter Keane (Waltz) had reached success beyond belief, revolutionizing the commercialization of popular art with his enigmatic paintings of waifs with big eyes. The bizarre and shocking truth would eventually be discovered though: Walter’s works were actually not created by him at all, but by his wife Margaret (Adams). The Keanes, it seemed, had been living a colossal lie that had fooled the entire world. A tale too incredible to be fiction, BIG EYES centers on Margaret’s awakening as an artist, the phenomenal success of her paintings, and her tumultuous relationship with her husband, who was catapulted to international fame while taking credit for her work. The film is written by Golden Globe winners Scott Alexander and Larry Karaszewski. Danny Huston, Krysten Ritter, Jason Schwartzman, Terence Stamp and Jon Polito also star.
