Ang Lee's magnificent take on Miss Austen's 1811 novel, takes wonderful advantage of 4k technology, with every bit of information captured on the original negative lovingly transferred to a tiny silver disc.

Shot on fillum, grain structure comes to the fore in the most beautiful way, creating a delicate patina across the frame.

It's a Columbia project, which means that everything is perfect. HDR has been delicately applied.

Audio, originally heard theatrically in Sony's proprietary SDDS (8 channel) format, has been updated to Dolby Atmos, and it fills the proscenium.

Great film, great disc, and an asset to any serious home cinema library.

Picture - 5 (HDR)

Audio – 5 (Dolby Atmos)

Pass / Fail – Pass

Plays nicely with projectors - Yes

Makes use of and works well in 4k - 4

Highly Recommended

There's a HUGE difference between the blu-ray and UHD from the same 4K scan. Very noticeable in the difference in grain structure and how more vibrant the colours are on the UHD. The blu-ray looks flat and dull in comparison. A demonstration example for what a UHD derived from a film source can achieve.
