The poet Sylvia Plath (Paltrow) was an intensely depressed woman who tried committing suicide more than once in her youth. After meeting British poet Ted Hughes (Craig), the two fell in love and married, and Sylvia lived happily for a brief time. Always suspecting her husband of infidelity and suspicious of his every move, her depression deepened with every passing year of marriage. And in the end even the love of her two children and a promising career ahead of her could not save Sylvia from herself. (Tricia Littrell)
The anamorphically enhanced 2.35:1 DVD picture can be slightly soft and lacking in finer details. Colors are often nicely saturated, though many scenes are awash in hues that support a certain mood or setting. It seems the more depressed Sylvia gets, the color stylistically and creatively drains from the picture. Fleshtones appear well balanced, and blacks are deep but undefined. Edge halos are noticed throughout, and there is also occasional pixel breakup. (Suzanne Hodges)
