September is the latest Woody Allen movie to get the Blu-ray treatment from Twilight Time and as a drama, it’s not the best from the legendary filmmaker but the acting is quite good and some of the writing is sharp.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


Following an attempted suicide, Lane (MIA FARROW) retreats to her summerhouse in Vermont to rest. However, Lane’s residence is not the peaceful haven it should be when her houseguests disrupt the healing process. Lane struggles to deal with her obnoxious mother (ELAINE STRITCH), who is visiting with her stepfather (JACK WARDEN). While Lane lusts after a writer (SAM WATERSTON) who wants her best friend (DIANNE WEIST), a friendly neighbor (DENHOLM ELLIOTT) carries a torch for Lane.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 0.5/5


This comes with an 8-page booklet. The only feature is the Theatrical Trailer (0:59; SD).

 


VIDEO – 3.75/5, AUDIO – 3.25/5


September comes to Blu-ray presented in its original 1.85 widescreen aspect ratio and given a standard but fine 1080p high-definition transfer. There is an almost bronze-like tint that I’ve seen from previous Allen movies which lends to more natural tones and little color, though skin tones do appear to be pretty good.

The included DTS-HD Master Audio Mono track is serviceable enough but considering the bulk of the movie is heavy on dialogue, with a spattering of a score thrown in to add modest depth. Nothing spectacular but don’t need a heavy presence for a movie like this.


OVERALL – 2.5/5


Overall, September is the latest Woody Allen movie to get the Blu-ray treatment from Twilight Time and as a drama, it’s not the best from the legendary filmmaker but the acting is quite good and some of the writing is sharp, I just had a hard time really getting involved with these characters. The Blu-ray meanwhile only has a trailer in the features while the video/audio transfers aren’t spectacular but good enough.
