Ismail Merchant, the producer of many award-winning films directed by James Ivory, directed the drama Cotton Mary, which comes to DVD with a widescreen anamorphic transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround. French subtitles are accessible, and the soundtrack is closed captioned. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer. This is a solid release from Universal that will please fans of the distinctive Merchant/Ivory style.
