Special features include commentary with Tim Guinee, Elizabeth Reaser, Editor James Stanger, Producer Gil Bellows, and Writer/Director Ali Selim; an 11-minute behind-the-scenes featurette (Sweet Land: A Labor Of Love Story); the theatrical trailers; and up-front previews.
When German-born Inge (Reaser) arrives in her new country, post World War II America, as a mail-order-bride, she finds the locals not as friendly as she would have hoped for. She struggles with the language, the customs, and the local clergy who openly forbid the marriage between Inge and her Norwegian-born intended, Olaf (Guinee). Inge perseveres and tries to secure her new neighbors
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a pleasing image quality, with well-balanced contrast and natural flesh tones. Details are not as well resolved as on the best releases. Colors are slightly under-saturated, but they do look fairly natural. Edge enhancement is noticeable, but compression artifacts are rarely seen. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #91 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I need a magazine at dose and not a sugar coat approach to reviews. I need a magazine that is not bias or a sell-out. And Widescreen Review is my winner. I am a 23-year old audiophile that likes to stay in the know and up to date on whatís new and whatís hot. I can't do that with a magazine that says every single review is a good one, like other mags out there that will be left name-less. The Sound And Vision of a product is important, but donít sell-out to make a buck, and those people out there are the ones who think that Gateway makes a good plasma. Keep up the good work. I love the mag.
