  WSR Narrative Review
Story Synopsis:
Four-year-old Amanda McCreary (Madeline O

DVD Picture:
The anamorphically enhanced 1.82:1 DVD shows good color balance, with bold, bright hues and natural-looking fleshtones. Black levels are relatively solid, but good shadow delineation helps create a more realistically dimensional-looking image. Details are fairly well resolved, but there are many instances when the image can look overly soft. Film grain is fine, but it is pervasive enough to be a slight distraction in flat color fields. Pixel breakup can be somewhat of a distraction at times and edge enhancement, while minor, can be noticed on longer shots. (Danny Richelieu)
