When Gregg Araki wrote the script for this adaptation of Scott Heim’s tale of child abuse, he listened to the Cocteau Twins and other music from the 4AD label, including The Moon and the Melodies, a collaboration between Twins songwriter Robin Guthrie and minimalist composer Harold Budd. When it came time to score his film, Araki implored the two to get together again, and the result is an ethereal, unexpected soundtrack that adds whole other dimensions to the tale it accompanies.
