If I where to rate the music ... this would be an easy 10/10. At least and while I don't mean to slam or rather minimize the movie, in comparison it does fade a little bit. But that is nitpicking, because overall it is a great movie/drama. We get a woman and how she became the person she is. The singer, the individual, the character men see and crave.
There might be a few bumps along the ride and certain things may feel uncomfotable to watch to say the least, but the movie stays true to its nature. And yes the music is melodramatic at times, but it is also very apt. It generates emotion that cannot be denied. And if you understand the text, even more so. I remember watching this when I was little and rewatching it gave me goosebumps all over again ... The historical background seals the deal
