In the 1970s, a young girl is brutally murdered in the exclusive town of Greenwich,Connecticut. Among the suspects are two young members of the Kennedy clan. The murder goesunsolved, and in the 1990s, Mark Fuhrman, disgarced-cop-turned-author, re-opens the case.Though the gore is sometimes beyond prime time levels, this is still very run-of-the-mill TVfodder.
The sound (limited to 2.0) is crisp and clear, and privileges the music. The sound ef…ectssituation is a little odd. By and large, the effects are very low key, and (as is the case with somany TV efforts) the music takes over the rear speakers almost completely. However, there aremoments of more surround effects, but not all of them make sense (see the scene towards theend, when we hear keyboard clicks in surround).
The colours are nice enough, and I wasn’t aware of any edge enhancement problems. Thismay have been, however, because I was far too aware of a different problem: the grain level isabsolutely intolerable. The degree of grain varies from shot to shot, but some shots are mind-bogglingly bad, with a picture quality that would be unacceptable on VHS, let alone DVD.
Nothing at all, really. The menu is basic, and there are trailers for Auto Focus, Eye See Youand Taboo.
True crime afficionados will find this an acceptable 88 minutes. I can’t really recommendit too much otherwise, since the terrible grain doesn’t help a very standard TV flick.
