Something for Thursday

We recently watched The Holiday, a rom-com written and directed by Nancy Meyers, and we liked it a great deal, despite our inability to quite buy into the idea that both Kate Winslet and Cameron Diaz are lovelorn women with zero luck in love. I enjoyed the movie for many reasons, one of which is the score by Hans Zimmer. Zimmer is not always the first thought people might have when thinking about scores for rom-coms, but he has some chops in this regard! One of my favorite Zimmer scores is, after all, his wonderful work for As Good As It Gets, and now I’m enjoying this one. Here’s a selection.
