The French soundtrack specialist Alexandre Desplat garners another Oscar nomination for his score to Philomena, the true story of how one Irish woman's (Judi Dench) quest to find her long-lost son, along with journalist Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan).
A melancholy waltz lifted directly from the fairground finishes off this superbly sensitive score. Fairground music does always have that background of malice or spookiness synonymous with being a child terrified of the rides, and Desplat is sure to use it wisely here.
