Rachel Getting Married

 (2008)

Rachel Getting Married Blu-ray offers solid video and great audio in this fan-pleasing Blu-ray release

When Kym returns to the Buchman family home for the wedding of her sister Rachel, she brings a long history of personal crisis and family conflict along with her. The wedding party's abundant cast of friends and relations have gathered for an idyllic weekend of feasting, music and love, but Kym -- with her black-comic one- liners and knack for bombshell drama -- is a catalyst for long-simmering tensions in the family dynamic.

For more about Rachel Getting Married and the Rachel Getting Married Blu-ray release, see Rachel Getting Married Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 3.5 out of 5.

Starring: Anne Hathaway, Rosemarie DeWitt, Debra Winger, Bill Irwin, Anna Deavere Smith, Mather Zickel

Rachel Getting Married Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

It's tough to know how to rate the picture quality of Rachel Getting Married. Recorded at least partially on Demme's high definition cam-of-choice, the Canon HV20, there is no feel of film. It is a very digital affair. The picture is not grainy but noisy. This is not the fault of the Blu-ray transfer, so why penalize its picture with a poor rating? The fact of the matter is that some elements of the PQ are surprisingly vivid, with strong colors that contribute to the unique style of the production. The definition is also good and the Blu-ray communicates emotions through facial expressions far better than standard definition, which is essential for a family drama like Rachel Getting Married. Unfortunately, the shadow detail and bright areas of the screen can be problematic and detail is sometimes lost in areas so bright they are almost washed out or dark areas that lack adequate shadow depth. Watch the scene in the bathroom as Rachel consoles Kym after her breakdown. The low light level contributes to noise and also saps the scene of detail. However, outdoor shots are lively and brilliant. Watch the scene where the bride cuts the cake. The intricate frosting pattern and rich blue color are rendered with surprising definition and vividness--at least when the camera isn't shaking wildly.

I'm not a fan of handheld cameras and Rachel Getting Married is a main offender in this style. The picture bobs, jolts, shakes and almost never stays still. Granted, this isn't a problem with the picture quality per se, but it does create constant motion blurs, even during sequences where no virtually no action occurs with the characters. It's distracting and annoying. Everyone knows what Demme is going for here: an intimate, voyeuristic family video type of experience. But I wish filmmakers would weigh the novelty of that approach against the rock steady experience of mounting cameras to show a scene. The handheld approach ultimately takes attention away from where it belongs, but once you get past that and the virtual lack of analog film-like qualities, the picture of Rachel Getting Married seems good.


Rachel Getting Married Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.0 of 5

I enjoyed the Dolby TrueHD 24-bit 48 kHz audio track of Rachel Getting Married. My major complaint was the variable level of dialog and some muffling of words, but there was an honesty and simplicity in the recording that I appreciated more than the typical overly produced audio tracks of most modern movies. Demme uses ethnically flavored instrumentation to give his production some pep. He also mixes it with his own political leanings, employing Palestinian American Zafer Tawil, who is credited with the oud and qanun along with other stringed instruments. He plays the solo violin in "Wedding Waltz" and the slightly more exotic "Kym's Homecoming", and the peculiar "Ethan's Theme", which has a humming/groaning vocal effect underneath all the unfocused plucking. While the definition is good on all the instruments, the production values are rather bare bones, and the mixing is off a bit. The music tends to dominate and drown out the dialog but it does add to the off-beat, festive/manic quality to many of the scenes. As for the soundstage, virtually no content is assigned to the rear channels.
