    Does anyone know the A.R. of the recently released Divorcing Jack DVD? I got the R2 (UK) DVD last year and to my dismay it is Pan & Scan -- I am hoping it got fixed for the American R1 release.
    Really good movie BTW.

    The film was shot spehrical, with no hard matting, meaning the entire 1.37 to 1 frame was exposed.
    In England, this probably means a 1.66 to 1 aspect ratio was intended.
    I see no significant information missing from the sides of the frame on the transfer, and have often wondered if it was a movie made for Britsh television. The transfer even looks like it has a bit of headroom to spare at TV's 1.33 to 1 A.R.
