"Junebug" is a 2005 comedy-drama film directed by Phil Morrison. It was released on August 3, 2005 and stars Amy Adams, Alessandro Nivola, Embeth Davidtz and Benjamin McKenzie. It was filmed at Wake Forest University, at [http://www.replacements.com/ Replacements, Ltd. ] in McLeansville, North Carolina and in Winston-Salem, North Carolina.

Plot

When newlywed Madeleine (Embeth Davidtz), a British diplomat's daughter, travels from Chicago to the rural hill country of North Carolina to pursue a local, self-taught painter (Frank Hoyt Taylor) for her outsider art gallery, she takes this road-trip opportunity to meet her husband George's (Alessandro Nivola) family, who happen to live only 30 minutes away. There's his flinty, judgmental mother Peg (Celia Weston), his reserved, contemplative father Eugene (Scott Wilson) and his sullen, resentful, twenty-ish brother Johnny (Benjamin McKenzie) who, although married, still lives at home, studying for his high school equivalence certificate while working at [http://www.replacements.com/ Replacements, Ltd. ] as an order processor. They're superficially hospitable but hardly welcoming, except Johnny's talkative yet sweet and very pregnant wife Ashley (Amy Adams) who plans to name her baby "Junebug."

core and soundtrack

Though much of the movie is free of background music, its score is made up of original music by Yo La Tengo, as well as eighteenth century classical music. Also, the film begins and ends with the 1977 song "Harmour Love" performed by Syreeta Wright and written by Stevie Wonder. During a scene where most of the characters are at a church social, George and two young men are featured singing the hymn “Softly and Tenderly, Jesus Is Calling” by Will Thompson.

No official soundtrack has been released of the film. As a result, Syreeta's album "One to One" (which contains the song "Harmour Love") has since experienced a resurgence of sales. Yo La Tengo have released some of the original music in a compilation of their work on soundtracks "They Shoot, We Score".
