Joshua [DVD] [2002]

Tony Goldwyn stars in the uplifting family story Joshua. The film is presented in a decent looking 1.33:1 full frame transfer that sports solid colors and dark black levels. While the transfer for this film looks very presentable, there are a few minor imperfections including some dirt/grain and a small amount of pixilation. Otherwise this is a decent transfer that should please fans. The soundtrack is presented in both Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround as well as Dolby Digital 2.0 Surround, both in English. The main directional effects and surround sounds for this audio track come in the form of popular Christian artist Michael W. Smith's emotional film score. Otherwise, this is a mostly front heavy mix that features distortion free dialogue, effects and music. Joshua features a few supplemental materials, starting with a behind-the-scenes look at the film. This short featurette includes interviews with the cast, crew and author of the best-selling novel on which the film is based. Some production notes, cast and crew info, a theatrical trailer and TV teaser round out the special features on this disc.

Synopsis

Joshua
A mysterious stranger brings both spiritual comfort and a certain level of distrust to a small community in this drama based on the spiritual best-seller by Joseph Girzone. A mysterious man named Joshua (Tony Goldwyn) arrives in the small Midwestern town of Auburn sometime in the late 19th century. Joshua sets up a carpentry shop in Auburn, and soon develops a reputation for his kind and unselfish nature; after bad weather nearly destroys a church in the town's African-American neighborhood, Joshua offers to help repair the building, and has soon persuaded much of the community to offer their support, including Father Pat (Kurt Fuller), a priest at Auburn's Catholic church. Father Pat's superior, Father Tardone (F. Murray Abraham) is also struck by Joshua's talent, charm, and humble desire to help others, and asks him to carve a new statue of Saint Peter for their church. However, while much of the town is following the good example set by Joshua, when people begin to ascribe supernatural powers to the town's new carpenter, Father Tardone begins to become suspicious, and wants to know who Joshua really is and what he really intends to do in Auburn. Joshua features an original song score by popular contemporary Christian musician Michael W. Smith. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
