Penelope [Original Motion Picture Soundtrack] Review

by William Ruhlmann

Penelope is a romantic comedy in the Cyrano de Bergerac mode, except that the main character is a woman with a nose like a pig's snout. Composer Joby Talbot (The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy) has come up with a playful score reminiscent of the sort of thing Danny Elfman commonly does for Tim Burton movies. On the soundtrack album, that music is interspersed with a collection of attractive pop songs, notably one by Stars and a U2-style rock track by the Secret 6.
