Alright…I was excited and also nervous to see this movie after reading and LOVING Jodi Picoult’s book, “My Sister’s Keeper”. There’s always that element of, “the book was wayyy better”. I must say, I was terribly disappointed. If you’ve never read the book, I would suggest the film to you. On it’s own, it’s a good (sad and touching) movie. In relation to the best selling novel, it cannot even compare. I don’t want to give any details away about either the book or the film…plus I’d rather not focus on the negative…SO, let’s talk about the music!
I noticed some great tunes throughout this movie. The soundtrack includes songs from Regina Spektor, Pete Yorn, James Blunt and Jeff Buckley. Greg Laswell does a very interesting cover of “Girls Just Wanna Have fun” and Edwina Hayes does a gorgeous rendition of “Feels Like Home”.
I loooove movies almost as much as music, and when the two come together in harmony, it makes for some extremely memorable moments. The music in this movie definitely complimented (most of) the scenes, and helped bring me into the story.
