Product Description

Product Description

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

Format: DVD
This is a wonderfully brave and unusual film in that we have the interaction between the 'red' and 'blue' states of the usa without either trying to change or revolutionise the other's way of life. Her, city-slicker 'outsider' art dealer Madeleine meets her inlaws in north carolina. What we expect is the usual prodigal son returning with new wife, and either the prodigal son to reject new wife and go back to his old ways, or for the new life to clash horrifically and destructively. Blissfully, this is not what we get in Junebug. As an outsider art dealer, madeleine is uniquely placed to let us stand shoulder to shoulder with her as an observer of this small town southern family and the emotional relationships and states that seem so foreign to her and anyone not familiar with that way of life in the audience too. We are passive, madeleine has no influence on the characters, and neither do we. What this means is that we get to, for once, see city and country as different states not in contention. one isnt shown to be better or triumphant. Instead we try to work out the nuances of the seemingly introspective and repressed characters in real time as madeleine herself is trying to. i wont spoil it by describing the simultaneous pain and harmony that is revealed in each character, but will say that the relationship between the younger brother and his child-like wife (amy adams - who was nominated for an oscar for her performance) is particularly well-written; the younger sibling disabled by his brother's return home to be at ease until his car has left the driveway, and the small tokens of love and fondness that in modern urban society seem unimportant that take over dialogue and grand gestures. brilliant - watch it!

I guess where I struggled with this is that I just did not actually care about any character. Then on top of that their interactions were often not believable to me. Because I did not feel invested in the characters or therefore the film, I think my attention had wandered by the supposedly impactful scenes towards the end.

A beautiful, emotionally intense film about the intricate workings of a family in America's southern religious belt.

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.

Highly recommended.

This is not a review of the film – which had great merit – but of the Eureka Blu-ray recording.
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.

Every so often a film is released that slips under your radar ('how did I miss that?' you ask yourself).Slowly though, a buzz of interest develops around the film and when you finally get to see it it's like stumbling across a treasure that is all the better for being an unexpected discovery. I fully expected this film to fall into this category, I can't remember the last time I sat down to a film with such a sense of anticipation, but I'm afraid it didn't fulfil those expectations.

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.

No need to review this wonderful film,just beware if you're hard of hearing there are no subtitles of any sort on this Blu-Ray.
Would have made do with my DVD if it wasn't described as having subtitles in the description ;(

The Product Description is an accurate assessment of this well observed, well acted film.
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.
