The Jane Austen Book Club

 (2007)

The Jane Austen Book Club Blu-ray offers solid video and decent audio in this enjoyable Blu-ray release

As five women and one enigmatic man meet to discuss the works of Jane Austen, they find their love lives playing out in a 21st century version of her novels. Sylvia, is shocked when her husband Daniel, leaves her after 20 plus years and three children. Jocelyn, her unmarried best friend, distracts herself from her unacknowledged loneliness by breeding dogs. Prudie is a young French teacher, in possession of a worthy husband yet distracted by persistent fantasies about sex with another man. The many times married Bernadette develops a yearning for one more chance at happiness. Beautiful, risk-taking Allegra, Sylvia and Daniel's lesbian daughter, has quit talking to her lover. And Grigg, a young science fiction fan and computer whiz, seems horribly both out of place and obliviously at ease as the only man to be invited into the book circle.

The Jane Austen Book Club Blu-ray, Video Quality

  3.5 of 5

Sony Pictures Classic presents The Jane Austen Book Club on Blu-ray in 1080p high definition and in its original 1.78:1 aspect ratio. I was somewhat disappointed by the overall quality of the transfer for a brand new film. Perhaps the biggest fault with the image is that is has a washed out and sometimes soft look to it. It is never as sharp and crisp as I expected it to be, even though the subject material doesn't necessarily demand a snazzy and flawless presentation. Flesh tones appeared on the redder side of normal, though this seemed to be an issue only now and then, sometimes in lighting where one might expect a reddish glow about the characters, and other times when only natural light shone on the actors. The image does sport some positives attributes. The image is mostly clear with excellent color reproduction, even though the colors don't necessarily jump off the screen with vibrancy and spunk. Detail is moderately high, but very fine details remained elusive in extreme close-ups. I didn't note any horrendous issues with the black levels at any point during the film. The print is as close to pristine as possible; I noted only one discernible black speck through the entire runtime of the show. Still, all things considered, the image lacked the pop and vibrancy we've come to expect from brand new films on Blu-ray, especially coming from Sony, whose reputation as a top-notch Blu-ray studio speaks for itself. This is a good effort, and the film's target audience is not likely to be as demanding on the whole as the typical Blu-ray viewer, and as such this transfer should suffice.


The Jane Austen Book Club Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  3.0 of 5

Like the video quality, perhaps the best word to describe the Dolby TureHD track that accompanies The Jane Austen Book Club on Blu-ray is "bland." Live Free or Die Hard this isn't, obviously, so it's not surprising in the least that "bland" is the order of the day. After all, this is a movie about a book club discussing the writings of a woman who lived some 200 years ago, hardly the stuff legendary high definition soundtracks are made of. Nevertheless, the track does offer up a few nice surprises in an otherwise unremarkable listening experience. The music throughout the film is pleasant, never overbearing or dominating the scenes it accompanies. When the music is cued, the listening area comes alive with wave after wave of your standard romantic "dramedy" type music, creating the appropriate atmosphere in which the film resides. Dialogue is reproduced with a natural flair, remaining focused in the center as is to be expected. There is a bit of ambience here and there, and while there are a few nice effects spread across the front soundstage, there is just not a lot happening in this mix outside the center channel. A scene where the women travel to Grigg's house for a book club meeting and find themselves in a makeshift haunted house proves to be the only truly active and impressive sonic moment in the film. The Jane Austen Book Club won't win any awards for its sound design, but it does what is asked of it with ease.
