Wit [DVD] [2001]

Mike Nichols directed this superb adaptation of Margaret Edsons Wit. The disc contains a widescreen transfer that produces an image with an aspect ratio of 1.85:1. English and Spanish soundtracks are rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. English, Spanish, and French subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include cast and crew biographies. Although the DVD is light on extras, Wit is worth a look for the stunning lead performance by two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson.

Mike Nichols directs Emma Thompson in this made-for-cable adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning drama by Margaret Edson. Thompson plays Vivian Bearing, a college professor who teaches a course on English poetry. Vivian learns that she has advanced ovarian cancer and only a short time to live, which gives her a sudden and dramatic insight into the importance of kindness and compassion. Wit also features Christopher Lloyd, Eileen Atkins, Audra McDonald, and Jonathan Woodward as Dr. Jason Posner, a former student of Vivian's who helps treat her. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
