George Tillman's heartwarming, culinary-oriented family drama Soul Food 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, while a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Surround. English and Spanish subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include a commentary track recorded by the director, the original theatrical trailer, and a handful of recipes from the Soul Food cookbook. This is a very good release from 20th Century Fox that offers a great-looking and sounding film, while also providing an entertaining and original extra feature.

Suitable for adults only. Great presentation of real family issues and how they could be dealt with. A matriarch passes her skills on to a young grandchild. The entire movie is narrated through the grandchild. While it is about an African Ameerican family, the issues affect all race and ethnic groups. Some scenes will be offesive to some adults. Reality is hard to deal with. Great for counselling, marriage prepreation, those dealing with families in crisis, and ministry. It will require a facilitor. Good for college Sociology, Psychology & MSW classes, as well as religious retreats. While many may not be personally involved in the issues discussed, they touch all families in some way or another in time. It has a fantastic ending that offers hope in some situations.
