Sydney, AU. (SONY BMG MUSIC Entertainment) - - Are you a Bob Dylan
fan? If so, then you need to get your hands on a copy of the soundtrack to new film North Country. Not only does it include Dylan classics and covers by Cat Power
and Leo Kottke, but it also features a newly-recorded Bob Dylan
track, 'Tell Ol' Bill', which is ONLY available on the North Country soundtrack... North Country is currently screening in Australian cinemas, and has yielded a Best Actress Oscar nomination for leading lady Charlize Theron, who plays Josey Aimes.
In the wake of a failed marriage, Josey returns to her hometown in Northern Minnesota hoping to build a better life for herself and her two children. Encouraged by her friend Glory (Frances McDormand), one of the few female miners in town, Josey takes a job at the mine.
She's prepared for the back-breaking and often dangerous work, but coping with the harassment she and the other female miners encounter from their male coworkers proves far more challenging.
'North Country' follows Josey's journey on a road that will take her farther than she ever imagined, ultimately inspiring countless others, and leading to the nation's first-ever class action lawsuit for sexual harassment.
We're running a competition here on sonybmg.com.au giving you the chance to score passes to the movie and a copy of the soundtrack, featuring Bob Dylan's 'Tell Ol' Bill'. Check it out here...
The North Country soundtrack is in stores now, and the film is currently screening across the country.
