Buddy Amaral (Affleck) is your typical advertising exec. Callous, pushy, and a little full of himself, he has what it takes to land the big accounts...and the ladies. One day, while sitting out a flight delay with two strangers, he decides to give up his seat to one of them who was bumped from their flight in order to hit on the woman they are sitting with. The flight crashes and the man is killed. Suffering from deep guilt, Buddy eventually looks up Abby (Paltrow), the widow of the man he feels he sent to his death. He falls deeply in love with her, but worries about how she will feel about him if he tells her his responsibility in her husband
The anamorphically enhanced 1.85:1 DVD picture exhibits a lovely, naturally balanced color scheme, with natural fleshtones, rich hues, and deep blacks. The picture is often quite easy-on-the-eyes, with sharp and detailed images that appear very realistic. Contrast and shadow delineation are nicely rendered, with good visual information even in the darkest scenes. The picture is solid, with few distractions, though a hint of edge enhancement is noticed from time to time. (Suzanne Hodges)
Our family has made a significant investment in a dedicated home theatre. Upon reading nearly every other home theatre publication, I have found that Widescreen Review has consistently provided us accurate reviews, and as such have built a substantial library of movies and equipment, which we consider “Keepers.” I find the equipment reviews, especially the Subwoofer Special Edition, to be right on the money and a must-have. The video equipment reviews (we are currently in the market for a front projector) are educationally based as well as comparatively based, so I learn about equipment in general while I can compare specifications. I thank you for a publication well worth the cover price issue after issue.
