Having just seen the film - I agree with you. I wouldn't go as far and say the score would actually deserve an Oscar, but the music was beautiful, effective yet respectfully understated. The film as a whole is quite amazing. A harrowing story, which takes a dramatic turn I wasn't expecting (because, due to my initial lack of interest for this film, I never read anything about it). Eastwood, Freeman and Swank deliver top notch performances. In fact, all the characters are stand out, in their own comedic or dramatic ways.
