The Horse Whisperer (1998)
Five Things You Didn’t Know About Kristin Scott Thomas
Kristin Scott Thomas, the Oscar-nominated actress, has just plunged into an oversized chair that threatens to completely envelop her slight, 5 foot 6 frame. With a slightly imperious air, she insists we relocate to a sectional couch a few steps away to talk about why she left Hollywood, her on-and-off love affair with the movie business, and “The Darkest Hour,” the film that’s brought her back into the spotlight.

The sensational, overlooked film scores from the years 1990 to 1999 that really are well worth digging out...

However, the 90s was also a sensational decade for film music, gifting us classics including the likes of Jurassic Park, Titanic, Total Recall, Braveheart and countless others. But the sheer quality of these soundtrack treasures shouldn’t overshadow those undervalued hidden gems that demonstrate the extraordinary range and versatility of our finest film composers, ones that may have passed you by. So here’s our selection of those incredible works: ranging from the earworming to the unsettling, the melodic to the chaotic, these are the scores that simply demand your attention.
The honor will be presented at the 68th annual Writers Guild Awards at the Edison Ballroom in New York City on Feb. 13.

The lovely Scarlett Johansson was on "Late Show with David Letterman" and said she
