This slow-burning, acutely observed comedy of manners concerns a dealer in outsider art who threatens the equilibrium of her middle-class in-laws in North Carolina. Madeleine (Embeth Davidtz, Schindler s List) is a go-getting art gallery owner from Chicago, recently married to George (Alessandro Nivola, Goal!), a near-perfect Southern beau. When Madeleine needs to close a deal with a reclusive North Carolina artist, George introduces her to his family: prickly mother Peg (Celia Weston, The Village), taciturn father Eugene (Scott Wilson, The Last Samurai), cranky brother Johnny (Ben McKenzie, The O.C.), and Johnny s pregnant, childlike wife Ashley (Amy Adams, Enchanted, Doubt), who is awestruck by her glamorous sister-in-law. Madeleine's presence exposes the fragile family dynamics as hidden resentments and anxieties surface. As well as the Oscar® nomination, Amy Adams won Best Supporting Actress awards from the Sundance Film Festival and Screen Actors Guild (amongst many others). Junebug also won the MoMA New Directors Award and the Cannes Film Festival Critics Award. Critically observed as being a small quiet miracle (The Telegraph) and of having breathtaking visual textures (Time Out), Junebug is presented here , for the first time on Blu-ray, anamorphically in its original aspect ratio to replicate the theatrical experience as closely as possible ----Special Features---- *1080p 24fps AVC encode *Full length audio commentary with the stars of the film Amy Adams and Embeth Davidtz *Amy Adams interview and Q & A session in London, recorded in March 2006 *Ten deleted scenes *Five behind the scenes documentaries *Original casting sessions (Amy Adams, Ben McKenzie) *Ann Wood Art Gallery

Junebug is subtle in its approach and relies on the excellent acting of each of the family members to express the deep and unspoken feeling that each of them has. Amy Adams shines as young mum-to-be Ashley, while Benjamin McKenzie plays the character of a tormented husband, brother and son superbly.
There are NO SUBTITLES. The actors are barely audible, partly because of terrible diction but also because of poor microphone positions. I caught about 40% of the dialogue; fellow viewers who had good hearing ability fared little better.
Expensive Blu-ray products should always provide subtitles and when they don't, their absence should be made clear on the box.
The problem stems, in part, from hype. Hype takes different forms; we'd all recognise the saturation media blitz that accompanies the would-be Hollywood Blockbuster these days. Then you get the more gentle form that is associated with a film like this. Of course there is the Oscar nomination for Amy Adams which raises the profile of the film, but it is the reviews and recommendations by, no doubt, well intentioned journalists that films like this depend on to get the public's attention. Comments like "film of the year" and "a rare gem" and also the inclusion in several films of the year lists. All I can say is if this is a candidate for 'film of the year' it shows how bad things are.
It isn't that it's terrible, its just that there is nothing much here to get your teeth into. It would make a good TV play/movie. There is no plot to speak of(not essential, I know), so it is entirely dependant on the characters and their interactions to spark the interest but nothing happens. There are a few hints at hidden depths and 'past events that still have repercussions to this day' but that's all they are. Ultimately you feel that these 'hidden truths' are so dull (sibling jealousy/life isn't always nice) that they aren't worth delving into anyway.Read more ›
Would have made do with my DVD if it wasn't described as having subtitles in the description ;(
A very good study of family dynamics and how the presence of an outsider (in this case an in-law) with different priorities can bring to the surface oddities of the 'family script'. It is a good natured rendering of family and differences. Charming, slow moving, few days of a visit from city to countryside. Not an action movie.
