Cinderella Man [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - James Christopher Monger
Director Ron Howard trades the bombastic melodrama of longtime collaborator James Horner for the soft, moody, and always tasteful baton of composer Thomas Newman. Newman's signature piano-based atmospherics and brooding melodic hooks set against vast washes of dissonance serve Cinderella Man's Depression-era tale of boxing legend Jim Braddock Russell Crowe well, utilizing the same sepia-tone motifs and spacious orchestration that made the composer's work on Shawshank Redemption and Road to Perdition so quietly mesmerizing.

Echoes of Newman's past work can be found among the syncopated faux-marimbas of "Fight Day" Six Feet Under, and "Change of Fortune"'s serpentine piano lick American Beauty, but it's his progressive use of traditional Irish folk that stands out the most. Juxtaposed between the tenor sax of Bud Freeman "Tillie's Downtown Now" and Paul Giamatti whistling "Londonderry Air," Newman allows the bright tones of whistles, uilleann pipes, and fiddles to sound like hope itself, a near miracle in an age bereft of even the hint of smile.

    Great Movie!! Great Soundtrack

    This was one of the most outstanding films I've ever seen -- and I deplore boxing. The soundtrack was totally supportive and hearing it will bring back the memories of the movie -- a delight to remember. James J. Braddock was an extraordinary man living through some of the worst of times. It's always nice to see the good guy finishing first!!! His integrity, heart and perseverance is an inspiration to us all!! Ron Howard did another excellent job directing and in keeping to the facts.
