Based on Books • Drama, Music, Romance, Western, 30-Oct-2020
Enjoy this incredible thematic cue composed by Thomas Newman from Robert Redford's 'The Horse Whisperer'. This score follows the emotional journey of the film, where a girl and her horse undergo a personal voyage towards recovery and trust. In this scene, mother Annie MacLean (Kristin Scott Thomas) rides off on the Montana hillside with Tom Booker (Robert Redford). It's here we get the first glimpse of Annie's personal connection with Tom, and Newman writes a beautiful melody that celebrates both the landscape and the emotional connection we see unfold on-screen.
