Fireflies in the Garden (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)


Composer: Jane Antonia Cornish
Buysoundtrax Records
RRP: £13.99
Available 23 November 2011

To an outsider, the Taylors are the very picture of the successful American family: Charles (Willem Dafoe) is a tenured professor on track to become university president, son Michael (Ryan Reynolds) is a prolific and well-known romance novelist, daughter Ryne (Shannon Lucio) is poised to enter a prestigious law school, and on the day we are introduced to them, matriarch Lisa (Julia Roberts) will graduate from college - decades after leaving to raise her children. But when a serious accident interrupts the celebration, the far more nuanced reality of this Midwestern family’s history and relationships come to light...

Jane Antonia Cornish's score for Fireflies in the Garden is a beautiful collection of classically composed themes that will melt the ice from the coldest of hearts.

The only slight moan I have is that it's an incredibly short album. The 18 tracks only add up to 24 min, 34 sec of music - I could have listen to much more in a similar vein.

If sad, melancholy scores are your thing then you'll love Cornish's score for Fireflies in the Garden.
