My Own Love Song is now available on DVD... [This] is a 2010 road movie directed and written by Olivier Dahan and starring Renée Zellweger, Forest Whitaker, Madeline Zima and Nick Nolte. It premiered in Dahan's native France on April 7, 2010 and in the United States at the Tribeca Film Festival between April 21 to May 2, 2010. The soundtrack contains music written by Dylan, including 'Life is Hard' from his 2009 album Together Through Life.

I've been searching Amazon etc, for confirmation of the soundtrack album, and have found nothing. There's nothing on his website either. It sounds interesting, though.

And I wonder if the unknown songs are co-writes with Robert Hunter, or Dylan's own...

Maybe we'll all live long enough to purchase Bootleg Series Volume 26: THE LIFE IS HARD SESSIONS

Hope the songs released on Together Through Life weren't the cream of the crop. Otherwise I think I'd be more excited about Bootleg Series 24: The Down in the Groove Sessions.

I was told from someone at Sony when the film was released, there would be no separate soundtrack CD. Since the film was not a commercial success, I doubt that has changed. I wrote about it here:
