Feature commentary is provided by director Ross and Executive Producer Steven Soderburgh. The tone of the commentary is almost a Q and A between them. It covers further insight into the reality of the story, the backgrounds of the characters and their motivations. After the emotion of the movie it is a little dry and, as is often the case, repeats some of the stories and thoughts that have been covered in the featurettes. Despite this minor criticism the extras will enhance your enjoyment of the movie.
Well let's see then. I loved the movie, a beautifully shot and directed, heart-warming tale with an inspiring, emotional core. It is directed with tenderness and affection by Ross, and acted by three men displaying the best dramatic performances of this year. The disc offers print and sound quality on a par with the best, and is nicely rounded off with insightful and interesting extras. This is an odds on favourite to win your hearts, minds and cash.
