Wind [DVD] [1992]

Carroll Ballard's tale of sailors attempting to win the America's Cup, Wind appears on home video with a widescreen transfer that preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo, while English and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include theatrical trailers. Considering Carroll Ballard's ability to create stunningly beautiful images, it is a shame the picture quality on this disc is not better, but it is by no means unacceptable.

    Wind is set in the world of competitive yacht racing, where a young sailor (Matthew Modine) is intent on winning the America's Cup, as well as regaining the affections of his ex-girlfriend (Jennifer Grey). As the film opens, Modine chooses to race the America's Cup instead of staying with Grey. She leaves him and his team loses the race, leaving him devastated. Modine tracks Grey down, finding her with a new boyfriend, who happens to be an engineer. He persuades her and her new boyfriend to help him build a new yacht, which he plans on using in his pursuit to regain the America's Cup. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine, Rovi
