Byron Tiller (Garcia) is a struggling writer trying to provide for his family in the way he knows best. But when his editor has no interest in his latest manuscript, Byron finds himself desperate for income. When Luther Fox (Jagger) approaches Byron with an offer to come to work for his male escort service Elysian Fields, Inc., Byron decides to take him up on it. Without letting his wife (Margulies) know of his plans, "The Man From Elysian Fields" soon finds himself caught up in his sordid new world, thereby destroying all that he was trying to save.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits a satisfying picture, with colors that appear fully saturated and well balanced, with accurate fleshtones and deep blacks. Images are generally sharp and nicely detailed, though some scenes appear slightly soft. Pixelization causes a digital breakup of finer details at times. There is some grain and dirt inherent in the source element, but rarely does its presence seem excessive. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #6 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read WSR for a couple of reasons. First, I work in the electronics industry, and it is essential to have great demo material when presenting a product. It would be impossible to buy every DVD out there to find out what looks and sounds good in the DVD world. Second, electronics is my passion. I am constantly looking for any new information on software and hardware. WSR is a great source of information on both hardware and software.
