The Duchess Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.5 of 5

The Duchess adorns Blu-ray with a generally strong 1080p transfer, lavishly framed inside a 2.35:1 window. The picture quality is generally excellent, with sometimes breathtaking color reproduction. Lush green fields contrast with bright blue skies, and the ornately decorated and colored wardrobe that adorn the various characters seen in the film's first frames, showcase the film's Blu-ray quality. The subsequent interior shots are warm and inviting, highly natural and impeccably rendered on Blu-ray. Detail, too, is remarkable; the finely furnished interiors reveal the finest of nuances: the ornate furniture, the packed bookshelves, and the beautiful hardwood floors all come to vivid life in 1080p high definition. Background details, too, are mostly sharp and well defined. Grain is never seen in abundance, but it is there, seen more against darker backgrounds than bright ones. There are many instances where the film looks overblown and far too bright, which washes out some detail, but not much. Some darker scenes, those in a playhouse in chapter six, for example, even appear as if there is a haze over the image. Blacks, too, sometimes appear more of a dark shade of gray rather than true, deep black. Flesh tones never present much of a problem, though. No doubt, costume dramas like The Duchess favor high definition signals, and while every inch of the transfer isn't impeccable, more often than not the material delivers awe-inspiring imagery on Blu-ray.


The Duchess Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.5 of 5

Paramount delivers The Duchess to Blu-ray with a quality Dolby TrueHD 5.1 lossless soundtrack. Much like the video, the soundtrack is warm and inviting, with each note of the score flowing gracefully from the front speakers. Despite only a hint of a rear channel presence, there is a sense of immersion about the music, with Oscar Winner Rachel Portman's (The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants 2) fine score oftentimes overshadowing the story and acting. Sound effects travel perfectly across the soundstage; the beating of hooves, the rolling of carriages, or the barking of dogs in expansive entryways all manage to create a fine, realistic atmosphere. Subtle nuances, like the crackling of a fire, add the last bit of realism to the track to make it a fine, natural, not aggressive, but certainly real-sounding mix. Dialogue, too, is reproduced with nary a hiccup. While The Duchess certainly does not provide an invigorating workout for any sound system, it instead plays like a nice, relaxing, rejuvenating experience that makes for a pleasing listen.
