I’m not one to typically notice movie scores. And that’s not the reason I decided to watch Pride and Prejudice on E! tonight.
But as I watched the Jane Austen classic for the umpteenth time, it was hard not to appreciate the music that underlies each scene — not telling us how to feel, simply providing the perfect accompaniment to the action.
The music that accompanies the news of Beth’s death is in and of itself a showstopper.
And more recently I loved the soundtrack to The Social Network, which won a well-deserved Oscar. I remember being excited that the same composers were doing the score for The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.
Which makes me think I pay more attention to movie scores than I originally thought.
