Luis Mandoki's addiction drama When a Man Loves a Woman comes to DVD with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. An English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Surround and a French soundtrack has been recorded in Dolby Digital Stereo. There are no subtitles, but the English soundtrack is closed-captioned. Supplemental materials are limited to the theatrical trailer. Disney/Buena Vista has done a fair job on this release. The film looks and sounds fine, but there is nothing outstanding about the DVD.

    Synopsis


    When a Man Loves a Woman
    A dramatic treatment of a family torn apart by alcoholism and recovering from it, this was a star vehicle for popular actress Meg Ryan, who plays Alice Green, a school counselor who has a serious drinking problem. Her husband is Michael (Andy Garcia), an airline pilot. Though she's lighthearted and loving, Alice is often reckless and, when drunk, even neglects her children, nine-year-old daughter Jess (Tina Majorino) from a previous marriage, and four-year-old daughter Casey (Mae Whitman), whose father is Michael. After an accident, Alice realizes that she has "hit bottom" and goes into a clinic for rehab. When she returns home, she has kicked her addiction and has become independent and strong, and her perfectionist, controlling husband has trouble adjusting. Michael is used to his wife being weak and helpless, and they end up seeing a marriage counselor to recover from Michael's "co-dependency" on Alice's role as an alcoholic. ~ Michael Betzold, Rovi

      Great actors that everyone likes. Hard reality about life. The young children really made this movie/subject complete. If this is real in your family and others don't seem to understand you, show them this movie and let it speak for you. This is one of those times when someone else might can speak for you explaining what you have been trying to say - from all perspectives. It's never just about the one person, it affects everyone involved. Another one of those movies that should almost be 'required viewing'.

      I love watching story lines like this, especially when you know others may be going through similar difficulties. This is a great movie to share with someone who may not, at first, know how to handle a situation. It breathes hope, encouragement and inspiration!!!

      Great movie with powerful performances by Andy and Meg. It shows the real results of addiction and how someone can overcome them. I highly recommend this movie.

      This was a really good movie to watch. Especially good when you can relate to the relationship between the characters.

      I usually LOVE romance movies. No question. This one didn't necessarily keep my attention.
