RATE IT! Movie Soundtracks - Misadventures of Margaret

Chances are, you have never heard of this film but don't let that fact keep you from experiencing one of the most GORGEOUS musical gems produced for a movie. 

The soundtrack lovingly created by one of my favourite bands doesn't even boast the full movie title -- the CD is called 'The Misadventures of Saint Etienne'. Yep, Saint Etienne are the pop-tastic English group behind this ear candy. Chock full of heartfelt intstrumental tracks as well as the breezy vocal stylings of lead singer, Sarah Cracknell, 'Misadventures' is the type of CD that you could listen to while going about your own adventures in your daily life. A bit retro, with a pop touch, it's no wonder that this album is listed as a clear favourite for all Saint Et fans despite the fact that it was only officially released in Japan. Believe me, it's worth the extra cash and the hunting around on eBay to get it.

As for the movie, "The Misadventures of Margaret", it's a shame that with its stellar cast of Parker Posey and Jeremy Northam that it doesn't live up to the magnificence of its musical score. 

Final verdict: Skip the movie, buy the soundtrack! Highlights: Do It All, Saturday, Alone in the Library.
