Mike Nichols directed this superb adaptation of Margaret Edsons Wit. The disc contains a widescreen transfer that produces an image with an aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include cast and crew biographies. Although the DVD is light on extras, Wit is worth a look for the stunning lead performance by two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson.
