EW's 100 list: The Sweet Hereafter (1997). I have not seen this movie but after reading up on this one I will put this on my Netflix queue. Mychael Danna is responsible for getting this one the list - coming in at #77.
Although the movie is set in modern times and it is about the aftermath of a tragic bus accident in a small rural town, some of the music hearkens back to medieval style compositions. I wasn't expecting that when I started my research on this one but was pleasantly surprised. But then I discovered one of the stars of The Sweet Hereafter sings on the soundtrack: Sarah Polley. Here's one of the songs: 'Courage'.
I have this movie on my list to watch and the soundtrack ready to download. I hope you enjoy it as much as I have.
Side note: This was based on the novel of the same name by Russell Banks.
