Special features include commentary with Amy Adams and Embeth Davidtz; 10 deleted scenes; five short behind-the-scenes featurettes: "Places And Faces" (four minutes), "Singing A Hymn" (five minutes), "Meerkats Gone Wild" (three minutes), "Ashley" (three minutes), and "All Abut Peg" (three minutes); the Amy Adams "Morning Scene" (14 minutes) and Ben McKenzie "Meerkats" (seven minutes) casting sessions; a photo gallery; previews; and up-front ads.
Madeleine (Davidtz), owner of a Chicago art gallery, travels on business with her husband George (Nivola) to North Carolina. Arriving in George's hometown, Madeleine is surprised to meet his odd family: mom Peg (Weston), dad Eugene (Wilson), brother Johnny (McKenzie), and Johnny's pregnant wife Ashley (Adams). Ashley takes an instant liking to Madeleine but the rest of the family gives her less than a warm welcome, and with the sound of the "Junebug" in the night air, Madeleine becomes more and more of a stranger in this new family of hers.

The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD picture exhibits pleasing quality throughout, with colors that are well-balanced with satisfying sharpness. There are some scenes that appear somewhat smeared, but pixelization and edge enhancement are limited. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #93 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
The technical levels of the articles are far beyond most other non-industry publications on home theatre. While I read many of them, WSR is very unique in its coverage, reviews, articles, and the added content of the Web edition. For all of those reasons, WSR is a must-subscribe for any HT enthusiast, and that is why I read it!
