Hope Floats

 (1998)

Hope Floats Blu-ray delivers great video and solid audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

Birdee Pruitt seems to have it all. She's been married for years to her handsome highschool sweetheart, and has a brilliant and sensitive child. But when her picture perfect life comes crashing down around her - when her beloved husband dumps her on national tv - Birdee must start over. With no place else to turn, the former beauty queen, along with daughter Bernice, heads back home... to Smithville, Texas. There her life becomes even more complicated as she tries to deal with a mother she must get to really know for the first time, a daughter who desperately misses her father, and the prospect of a new romance. As Birdee undertakes her emotionally charged journey, she begins to find strength to reclaim her life, rediscover her family and return to something she had almost given up... hope.

Hope Floats Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Hope Floats was shot by Caleb Deschanel, one of the most stylish cinematographers working today. Deschanel's trademark look is rich and textured, especially in scenes of nature (his early work was with Carol Ballard), and Hope Floats is no exception. Even in the TV studio scenes, he resists the temptation to light harshly and crassly. Through Deschanel's lens, the people on The Toni Post Show look better than they ever would on TV. And when the film quickly reaches Texas, he's in his element.

The 1080p, AVC-encoded Blu-ray offers an excellent image with richly detailed surfaces, a lightly visible grain pattern, saturated colors and excellent detail. Blacks are genuinely black, and Smithville is the kind of setting where the nights are dark enough so that the image would visibly suffer without a true black. Nevertheless, shadow detail is well preserved in the kind of scenes where you need to be able to see what's happening, e.g., when Justin shows Birdie the house he's building and they go out back, where there's almost no light. Fox has used a BD-25, but the film is neither long nor action-packed, and there are no real extras; as a result, there are no compression-related issues (or, at least, none that I noticed).


Hope Floats Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The DTS 5.1 lossless track for Hope Floats is restrained but detailed, especially when Birdie returns home to Smithville. Little sounds of the countryside and small town life are layered into the sound mix and often float into the surrounds: birds chirping, wind blowing, trees rustling. Dialogue is clear and centered. The primary beneficiary of the track's fidelity is the musical score consisting of original underscoring by Dave Grusin and a fine assembly of moody tunes, some original and some covers, overseen by soundtrack producers Don Was and director Whitaker. Lyle Lovett's version of "Smile" and Sheryl Crow's "In Need" are particularly noteworthy. Indeed, as far as emotional authenticity is concerned, the soundtrack easily bests the film it accompanies.
