The wonderful people over at ZoneOut have written a great review of ‘The Dry’ Soundtrack, worth a read and then a watch!
“The Dry, a film based on Jane Harper’s award-winning novel, follows Australian federal Agent Aaron Falk (Eric Bana) as he revisits his drought-stricken hometown to attend a tragic funeral. But his return opens a decades-old wound – the unsolved death of a teenage girl.
The mystery and loneliness of the barren farming district depicted in The Dry can be heard in the film’s creative soundtrack – composed by South African-born, London-based Peter Raeburn. Compared to other contemporary thriller scores in the UK/Nordic vein, The Dry’s soundtrack does have a distinct clarity, perhaps reflecting the clear, blue skies of the film’s regional Victorian setting.”
