  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Miranda Frayle (Tripplehorn) and Don Lucas (Baldwin) were the hot Hollywood couple in the 1950s according to the flawed, but entertaining Relative Values (based on the play by Noel Coward.). That is, until Miranda leaves Don and falls in love with the oh-so upper crust Nigel Marshwood (Atterton). Plans of their engagement shock his mother Lady Marshwood (Andrews), but not as much as her maid Moxie (Thompson) who turns out to be Miranda

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD exhibits colors that well represent the early 1950s setting of the film. The warm color scheme exhibits nicely balanced fleshtones, and deep blacks. Images are generally sharp, but minor smearing is evident. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely rendered. The picture is solid, with occasional source element artifacts. On rare occasions, fine details are noticed shimmering. (Suzanne Hodges)
