"De-Lovely" the film is an original tale of American composer Cole Porter. Kevin Kline stars as Cole Porter and Ashley Judd as Linda Porter. This story of everlasting love and undying music is complimented by a beautiful soundtrack featuring contemporary artists re-interpreting Porter's original songs. Many of these artists are unrecognizable. Robbie Williams singing a passionate love song? Alanis Morissette singing a show-tune? Yes and yes: and they do it fairly well. Diana Krall's rendition of "Just One Of Those Things" is quite captivating, as is "So In Love" done by Lara Fabian and Mario Frangoulis. Even Ashley Judd and Kevin Kline appear on a number of the songs on this compilation. The album ends with Cole Porter himself, singing "You're The Top". An enjoyable album of songs, re-done with class.
