  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Three brothers who have not spoken to one another in over a year come together on The Darjeeling Limited, a train that crosses the Indian continent, in an attempt to rediscover their familial bonds. The spiritual journey, which is meant to heal the Whitman brothers (Wilson, Brody, Schwartzman) after their father's death, derails when unexpected twists involving over-the-counter pain medications, strong Indian cough syrup, and a poisonous cobra leave them stranded beside the train tracks, miles from anywhere. (Stacey Pendry)

DVD Picture:
The stylized, anamorphically enhanced 2.40:1 DVD features a hazy-looking picture, seemingly covered by a brownish haze. Fleshtones look orange with little distinction between each person
