A Place at the Table Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

A Place at the Table takes a seat on Blu-ray with a 1080p/AVC-encoded presentation that's true to source, although those sources can differ drastically throughout the film. The locked-down interview segments look best—decently sharp and detailed—while some of the handheld material following the three families can be much softer and flatter. (At times, it even looks upscaled, with fuzzy edges and muddled textures.) And then there's the occasional stock footage, which is mostly in high definition, although there are a few noticeably standard definition shots in there as well. (Can we finally stop calling standard definition "standard," seeing as how it's not the standard anymore?) Overall, the documentary is very watchable, although you will spot lots of the usual low-budget, shot-on-inexpensive-video quirks—some blown-out highlights, some light banding, some macroblocking, etc. There's no reason to try and pick this one apart; you're not really watching A Place at the Table for the visuals.


A Place at the Table Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

Likewise, the film's front-heavy DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround track does exactly what it needs to do. The most important thing here is that the interviewees' voices come through cleanly and clearly—they do—and so everything else is just a bonus. The rear speakers are used only sparsely for ambience, but the soundfield is filled every few minutes with songs by The Civil Wars and T-Bone Burnett. (Expect lots of picked acoustic guitars and plaintive singing.) The disc includes optional English SDH and Spanish subtitles, which appear in easy-to-read white lettering. No issues here whatsoever.
