Won't Back Down (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack)


Composer: Marcelo Zarvos
Lakeshore Records
RRP: £13.99
Available 02 October 2012

Maggie Gyllenhaal and Viola Davis play two determined mothers, one a teacher, who will stop at nothing to transform their children's failing inner city school. Facing a powerful and entrenched bureaucracy, they risk everything to make a difference in the education and future of their children...

Marcelo Zarvos's score for Won't Back Down reminded me a lot of his work on Beastly. It's another collection of beautifully composed themes that will stir emotion in even the coldest of hearts.

While not quite as enjoyable as the composer's work for The Words, this still represents an impressive score that is well worth adding to your collection. The album lasts for 38 min, 26 sec and contains 21 tracks.
