DVD (Wide Screen)


Peter Mullan's controversial and award-winning drama The Magdalene Sisters makes its DVD debut with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The closed-captioned English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital 5.1, and a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. Spanish and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the documentary Sex in a Cold Climate, which offers a look at the historical events that form the basis for this film. This is a solid release from Disney/Buena Vista.
