Film scores provide a huge range of styles and sounds. From symphonic to electronic, from intimate to gigantic, it all depends on what story a movie wants to tell, and how it wants to tell it. On this week's Movies on the Radio, host David Garland presents music from some contemporary films now in theaters, making it clear that it's now a vital time for film music, with lots imagination and innovation on display. We hear from The Social Network, Let Me In, Howl, and other films.
