You Can Count On Me is a terrific story about the relationship between Sammy (Linney) and her brother Terry (Ruffalo). Orphaned at an early age, Sammy and Terry have coped with the tragedy in different ways. Sammy is making the best of her life, raising her young son Rudy (Culkin) without his father and work as a loan officer at the local bank when Terry blows back into her life, unchanged. An unfocused drifter, Terry becomes friends with Rudy and gets him involved in activities not suited for an eight-year-old boy (like pool hustling)
The anamorphically enhanced 1.78:1 DVD exhibits a nicely rendered picture. Images are sharp and detailed, with good contrast and shadow delineation. The picture has a rich, warm quality, with pleasing color fidelity. Hues are well balanced, with accurate fleshtones, and deep blacks. Minor edge enhancement is detected, but fine details rarely shimmer. There are infrequent source element artifacts noticed. (Suzanne Hodges)
Reason #29 Why Readers Love Widescreen Review:
I originally subscribed to your magazine because I am a home theatre junkie, and it gave me one more way to feed my addiction. However, I find the one thing that I really enjoy is full access to your subscriber Web Site. I'm on it every day looking up a DVD review or reading an up-to-the minute article on what's going on in the world of home theatre. It's first on my favorites list.
