All Music Guide - Matt Collar
The soundtrack to the 2008 remake of director George Cukor's classic 1939 proto-feminist film, The Women is a frothy and relaxed mix of contemporary singer/songwriter and indie pop. In the liner notes, writer/director Diane English relates that she wanted something reminiscent of the original film's Jazz Age vibe that would also reflect her version's modern point of view.
