Incredibly beautiful theme for the piano. Horner did an incredible job. The in flim score is perfect, and the themes fit in perfectly. Five stars. You'll love it, if you've never heard it.

I saw this film three times in the theatre when it was released, the music was just so brilliant, and the sweeping score just transported me every time. It's a pretty fun film too, especially if you like Jennifer Connelly.

Trivia fans may be interested to know that I swear I heard the theme playing in a medley of Horner's music whilst standing in the line for Space Mountain at Disneyland Paris.

I can't agree more. I, personally, believe that this score is the best that he's written (just my opinion.) The main theme by itself could make a career for any composer.

Wonderful work on this one, James.

That's correct.

It is used in the waiting area of Space Mountain in Disneyland Resort Paris, and also the big fountain in Epcot at Walt Disney World.

Was that really Jennifer Connelly? Cool. Great music as well! I love it! Though I feel like the sound effects at the beginning of the score didn't age well... but I do love the retroness of it
