Format: Audio CD
A British drama based on the novel by Sheila Kohler and directed by Jordan Scott, Cracks is a coming-of-age tale about a group of girls attending an elite boarding school in England in the 1930s; an established clique of girls idolize their enigmatic swimming instructor, Miss G (Eva Green), but the long-established order is upset following the arrival at school of a beautiful Spanish girl named Fiamma (Maria Valverde), who piques Miss G's interest, and arouses tensions and feelings of jealousy in the other girls.

The score for Cracks is by Spanish composer Javier Navarrete, who received a great deal of critical acclaim and an Oscar-nomination for his score for Pan's Labyrinth in 2006. Navarrete's music for Cracks is very classical, almost to the point of being old-fashioned. Written almost entirely for a string orchestra, woodwinds and piano, it paints a picture of the school's boarding school as somewhere out of touch with reality, an idyllic fantasyland where the girls play, safe from the world at large. It's also very English-sounding, in that intangible way, such that one can imagine a composer such as Patrick Doyle, or Rachel Portman, or George Fenton having written the score. Fiamma, the tragic Spanish girl at the center of film's story, has her own theme, a slightly withdrawn waltz-like theme for pianos that is pretty, in a sad sort of way, and eventually grows to encompass a sweeping, albeit rather foreboding, string accompaniment.

Cues such as "Lustful Thoughts", "Radfield Sets the Standard", "Midnight Swim" are exquisite, with dancing pianos and light, effervescent woodwind accents that create an atmosphere of carefree, youthful idyll.

Terrific soundtrack by Sr. Navarrete for a good movie. Looking forward to his future work.
