MOVIE
This has to be one of the most boring movies I have seen. The only notable is that this movie introduced the new NC-17 rating in America and the fact that it has Kevin Spacey.

It's the story of Henry Miller and the experiences he had that went into his novel, Tropic of Cancer.

The story is boring, characters very uninteresting and the movie shallow. Don't bother.

VIDEO
Video quality is mediocre at best, the transfer is sharp but colors are very muted and shadow detail is lacking. Very disapointing.

Henry & June is framed at 1:85:1 and is not 16:9 enhanced.

This is an single sided, dual layer disc.

AUDIO
Another dull Dolby Digital 2.0 track with little use of the surrounds. There is little to talk about this track.

Dialog was easy to hear.

EXTRAS
Crap extras adorn this disc.

Theatrical Trailer: Dolby Digital 2.0 sound, 1:33:1 video. Standard fare.

Production Notes: Standard notes here.

Cast Notes:  Standard cast notes.

FINAL THOUGHTS
Don't even waste you money on this disc. It's not even worth a rental.
