DVD General Information
Language including some sexual references and drug and alcohol use involving teens
When a traffic accident kills Ben Marris' (Duchovny) wife and soul mate Hannah (Taylor), sparing his 16-year-old daughter Sam (Thirlby), he feels as if his world is coming to an end. When the girl wakes up in the intensive care unit after the accident, she is not Sam at all
The anamorphically enhanced 2.32:1 DVD is dominated by hues of brown and green, with a slight desaturation of colors across the board. Black levels are generally solid, but there are times when darker scenes are washed out. Resolution is slightly soft, but there are scenes that are resolved quite well. Shadow delineation is good. Contrast is balanced well, but fleshtones appear garish. Edge enhancement is not a problem, compression artifacts are rare, and source artifacts are very rare. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #123 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I read WSR for the articles—honest. Terry Paullin's industry insight is refreshing and lively. The lack of comparisons of which home theatre-in-a-box is best or which sub $200 DVD player is best leaves more room for in-depth product and movie reviews. Most importantly, though, I read WSR for the caricature of Gary Reber morphed on to the movie featured on the cover in the Editor's Couch page. Pierce Brosnan had better watch out!
