Adding emotions and connecting space

by Kate Fortmueller

In this scene Irene (Carey Mulligan) and "Driver" (Ryan Gosling) go about their respective evenings in their own separate apartments. Even though Irene is throwing a welcome home party for her husband (who just returned home from jail), the music tells us about their emotional states and connection. Consider how the meaning of this scene might change without music? Or with a different song? Are there any visual cues that help us to understand the romantic tension and undertone of this scene or is this entirely communicated through the music?
