Something for Thursday

Today a brief suite from Elmer Bernstein's score to the film Far From Heaven, a movie which seems to have dropped somewhat off the radar unfortunately. Bernstein died not long afterwards, following one of the great careers in film scoring. For this film Bernstein really captured the story's sense of elegiac sadness, as several characters' lives intersect in a way that leaves most of them unable to live the life they really want. A sad and beautiful score for a sad and beautiful film.

I was rather fond of this film when I saw it in the theater at the time.
