Director: Neal Slavin Cast: William H. Macy, Laura Dern, David Paymer

DVD (Wide Screen)


Neal Slavin's adaptation of Arthur Miller's novel, Focus comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a making-of featurette. This is a decent disc from Paramount that does a superb job of presenting the film, but falls short on offering any compelling extras.

Have you ever felt the sting of discrimination? Have you ever felt ostracized? When you are oppressed how does it make you feel? This is an insightful, informative, educational, and enlightening DVD to assist viewers to "focus" on the true meaning of abusing power and terrorizing other human beings. *Well developed plot with an engaging and engrossing cast. **WARNING: has some graphic scenes and is not for the faint of heart.
