Overview

Jessie Nelson's heartwarming period piece Corrina, Corrina comes to DVD with a pair of transfers. The widescreen anamorphic transfer preserves the original theatrical aspect ratio of 1.85:1, and is preferable to the standard full-frame image. Closed-captioned English soundtracks are rendered in both Dolby Digital 5.1 and Dolby Digital Surround. English subtitles are accessible. Supplemental materials include the original theatrical trailer, as well as filmographies of the cast and crew. This is a fine, but unspectacular release from New Line.

Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Perry Seibert
Jessie Nelson's Corrina, Corrina takes such potentially touchy topics as race relations and the grieving process of a young girl who has lost her mother, and fashions a friendly, feel-good love story. The soft-peddled script would make the movie nearly unbearable if not for the skill of Ray Liotta, Whoopi Goldberg, and especially Tina Majorino, who has been given the cute moppet role but is doing her best to play the initially mute child as a real human. Liotta writes jingles while Goldberg dreams of writing liner notes for jazz albums. This connection leads to some excellent uses of the late-'50s setting, and allows just enough ground for their relationship to feel like it is based on something other than plot necessities. But like her later film I Am Sam, Nelson avoids confronting the messiest aspects of the lives of her characters. Corrina, Corrina could have been a sharply observed period piece and character study (the actors certainly seemed up for the task), but settles instead for mushy feel-good sentiment.

This is a great movie. It will touch your heart and give you some laughs! You have to love this movie. The actors and actresses are all great! You can't get more realistic than this. Instead of giving you a brief summary of this movie I am just gonna let you go ahead watch it for yourself! A movie that you can't see just one time!

This movie is wonderful for the family. The story's plot involves situations with family members dealing with death, allowing new people to enter into your life to help the healing process, and the stressed involved with being a widow. The movies also spreads realistic light on the idea of being in a interracial relationship in the fifties.
