Everyone’s buzzing about the Anne Hathaway-starring, Jonathan Demme-directed, Rachel Getting Married. It’s better than the chihuahua movie even. On Friday, we listened to Tunde Adebimpe’s Neil Young cover (the TVOTR singer plays the guy marrying Rachel). Also on the soundtrack are two Robyn Hitchcock tunes, one of which was written for the film. It’s a dense rocker punctuated by trumpets and wah wah and kitchen-sink percussion. Thoroughly uplifting, unlike the movie.
Rachel is in limited release now. Oscar noms aren’t ’til January.
