About this Album

Director Sam Mendes' film version of the classic, 1961 Richard Yates novel, starring Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio, features a beautifully evocative score by Thomas Newman described by the Irish Times as "quintessential Newman—smart, moving and cool," along with three timeless tunes from the era by The Ravens, The Orioles, and The Ink Spots.
