The Plot: BAFTA AWARD WINNING I've Loved You So Long is the outstanding, critically acclaimed breakthrough film of the year. Kristen Scott Thomas (Four Weddings and a Funeral, The English Patient) offers a truly sensational performance is this utterly engrossing and deeply moving tale of two sisters who rebuild their relationship after fifteen years apart. The two women gradually discover common ground and learn how to relate to one another the memories of their shared childhood, all the while the spectre of their time apart looming overhead ... This intelligent and compassionate film is a testament to the power of family, love and forgiveness (Disc sleeve).
The ultimate, wrenching, reason for their 15 enforced years apart is not fully revealed until right at the end.
The video: 1.85:1 aspect ratio. The gentle setting has no strong or bright colours, and the lighting is mostly natural in both day and night scenes, rather than exaggerated (3).
The audio: Unlike the American Dolby TrueHD 5.1 release, this UK disc is only Dolby Digital 5.1 surround. Ambient effects discreetly support the emotions in the story. Not a film for subwoofer fans, LFE seems almost entirely absent (3).
