Marlee Matlin won a well deserved Best Actress Oscar
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a smooth, refined picture when compared to the noisy LaserDisc reviewed in Issue 19. The picture is slightly soft and hazy, though detail and definition are improved over the LaserDisc. Color fidelity is nicely balanced, with nicely rendered fleshtones and deep blacks, though the picture has a slightly dark quality. Source element artifacts are apparent throughout. Edge enhancement can be a distraction at times, but is not always apparent, and pixelization is only occasional as well. Overall, the visual experience is generally mediocre throughout.
