2013: BEST SONG - FOREVER YOUNG (THE CONGRESS), SUNG BY ROBIN WRIGHT


One of two wonderful covers recorded by Robin Wright for the tour-de-force that was The Congress, one of the year's best films. The other is her version of Leonardo Cohen's 'If It Be Your Will', which is also very moving, but this Bob Dylan cover is even better, I think. It's gorgeous out of context, and even more so in context. A film you must see and a song you must hear. Runners-up include 'If I Needed You' from The Broken Circle Breakdown, 'The Moon Song' from Her and 'So You Know What It's Like' from Short Term 12.
