The musical selections here are very interesting for a film about rural America. Instead of the standard country-western music, the soundtrack includes evocative jazz and experimental folk. I've had the soundtrack since the film was released, and it's one of the best – artists such as Mark Isham and George Winston on the Windham Hill label, which would become associated with "new age" but actually was so much broader.
Occasionally, it seemed the soundtrack was just a bit out of sync with the film's mood, particularly toward the end. Still, the music is excellent, is the film.
Any thoughts on this film's soundtrack?
