DVD General Information
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment
For mature thematic material, sexual content, brief strong language and some drug use
With six months to read six novels, the six members of The Jane Austen Book Club take reading the classics to new heights. The reading group consists of five women and one man, who decide to get together regularly to discuss the English writer
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a somewhat soft image, with relatively poor resolution at times that makes faces look waxy and plugged-up. There are times, however, when the images can look nicely detailed. Color fidelity is fairly good and contrast is nicely balanced. Black levels are fairly deep and shadow delineation is adequate. Edge enhancement is noticeable from time to time, but pixel breakup is not much of a problem. (Danny Richelieu)
Reason #62 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
Widescreen Review is the only place to go for no-nonsense evaluations of the audio and video qualities of a DVD before you drop your hard-earned cash for it. In an industry where the subjective is usually described in the most arcane manner possible (to the exclusion of the unwashed masses), WSR's clear and objective-as-you-can-get reviews give me the information I need to make purchasing decisions confidently.
