Songs and Story: Brave Review

by Heather Phares

Distilling the Brave experience into a portable souvenir, Songs and Story: Brave collects a handful of the movie's most memorable tunes along with a short retelling of the film's story. The lovely lullaby "Noble Maiden Fair [A Mhaighdean Bhan Uasal]," Julie Fowlis' soaring "Touch the Sky," and "My Spirit Flies" conjure Brave's picturesque Scottish setting as well as its headstrong heroine, Princess Merida. Actress Kelly MacDonald, who voiced Merida in the movie, tells the tale of the princess' yearning for freedom, as well as the unexpected consequences of her choices.
