Brazen stars Alyssa Milano as Grace, a true crime novelist who investigates the murder of her sister. Sam Page co-stars as Ed, a police officer and the protagonist’s love interest. The storyline follows the main characters as they learn about an online dominatrix community and a possible connection to a high school student. Composers James Jandrisch (Sweet Magnolias) and Jeff Tymoschuk (Aurora Teagarden Mysteries) scored the 94-minute film; music supervisor Natasha Duprey (Snowpiercer) selected the two tracks that bookend the narrative. Here’s every song in Brazen, an adaption of Nora Roberts’ 1988 novel Brazen Virtue.
