I need help, my wife wants to by Before Sunrise with Ethan Hawke but according to the box the aspect ratio is 1.85:1. I kind of remember it to be 2.35:1 or something like it. Also how is the picture and sound quality?

According to the IMDB, the original ratio was 1.85:1. The disc looks and sounds fine, btw - it won't blow you away by any stretch but there are no glaring compression problems like some other Warner discs of the same era (e.g. The American President).

It has a decent anamorphic transfer. Nothing amazing, but there aren't any major problems with it.

If you liked the film, I wouldn't hesitate for one second on picking it up - especially at it's current price.

Such a wonderful film, that is incredibly underated.

The aspect ratio of this dvd is 1.85:1
Sorry to be nitpicky, but the "Before Sunrise" DVD aspect ratio is 1.78:1, not 1.85:1. Not to initiate an argument, and the difference between 1.78:1 and 1.85:1 is inconsequential, but there you have it for the sake of accuracy and informativeness.
