Mona Lisa Smile

 (2003)

Mona Lisa Smile Blu-ray offers decent video and solid audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

In 1953, a time when women's roles were rigidly defined, free-spirited, novice art history professor Katherine Ann Watson (Julia Roberts) begins teaching at the prestigious all-female Wellesley College--which despite its academic reputation, is an environment where success is measured by 'how well' the students marry. Encouraging these women to strive for a more enlightened future, Watson challenges the administration and inspires her students to look beyond the image of what is, and consider the possibilities of what could be--contrary to popular belief.

For more about Mona Lisa Smile and the Mona Lisa Smile Blu-ray release, see Mona Lisa Smile Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.0 out of 5.

Director: Mike Newell
Writers: Lawrence Konner, Mark Rosenthal

Mona Lisa Smile Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.0 of 5

Mona Lisa Smile debuts on Blu-ray with a wishy-washy 1080p, 1.85:1-framed transfer that's of excellent quality in some places but otherwise proves a generally middling effort in most. The picture begins with an almost angelic tone about it, appearing just a bit faded, overly bright, and soft. From there, the picture seems to capture a slight digital sheen that gives the movie a sometimes harsh look about it rather than showcasing a smoother, more natural film-like texture. Still, the image retains a fair amount of grain, but there's a slightly flat feel to the proceedings, too. Black levels appear fairly stable, but flesh tones often showcase a slight red push. Fine detail impresses a great deal in some places, but looks flat and textureless elsewhere. The image does well in its reproduction of heavier period clothing, lending to objects like sweaters an almost palpable and realistic texture. On the flip side, furnishings, walls, and the like -- even those of intricate floral designs -- don't match the same level of realism as clothing and other assorted objects, such as tree trunks, seen throughout. Eagle-eyed viewers may note some very slight aliasing in one shot, and several scenes stand out as noticeably fuzzier than others. A fairly inconsistent but far from disheartening transfer, Mona Lisa Smile never looks bad, rarely looks great, and often finds itself somewhere in the middle where it's certainly several steps up from standard definition material but a far cry from the format's best offerings.


Mona Lisa Smile Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

The Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack that Sony has bestowed upon Mona Lisa Smile is a good one, given the film's reserved sound design. The picture's score is light, its atmospherics subtle, and its dialogue crisp and natural, lending to the experience the expected no-frills, Drama-oriented type of mix that allows for the story to take center stage, helped along mostly by supportive elements in the sound presentation. Musical delivery is smooth and free of any bothersome distortions; it's nicely balanced, centered across the front and with light rear-channel elements in support. The track does contain some fine atmospheric effects; a wedding scene in chapter six features the pre-ceremony music seemingly drifting about the listening area, and combined with the slight background noise of guest chatter, there's an honest, simple sense of immersion into the moment. Such subtle ambience defines much of what the track is about, and even through the lack of powerful bass and extended discrete and directional effects, listeners will appreciate the quiet strength of Mona Lisa Smile's lossless soundtrack.
