Breast cancer is a serious thing and this movie is based on a true story. For a subject like this, there could have been massive amounts of score to tell the story, but it’s only about 28 minutes and perhaps that’s enough. What Bramson get to tell in 17 cues feels right. It’s sort of sad, but it’s also uplifting and everything in between. It’s mostly a serious and hard-hitting drama score and that’s to be expected. The score on it’s own tell a story, particularly with the longer cues.
The sound of the score is one of long synthpads, but sprinkled on top are pianos and flutes. There’s certainly no massive orchestras here, but it’s hardly the point is it? It’s a poignant and nice score. It certainly works just as an album-listening experience and that’s what I’m looking for. I’m not getting filled up with one excellent cue after the other, and yes, I know it’s possible to do, but sometimes I like to listen to scores like this without much of an end product.
