Overview

Universal Studios took the talent-studded and heart-warming film The Emperor's Club and created an enjoyable DVD with a handful of extras. Presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, the transfer looks beautiful. The picture glows with bright colors and rich blacks, while keeping details crisp and sharp. The 5.1 Dolby Digital Surround is an ideal medium for James Newton Howard's score, and the dialogue comes across without static or haze. The in-depth commentary with director Michael Hoffman provides amazing insight into the film, the nuts-and-bolts of the production, and the film's cast, which includes Kevin Kline and Patrick Dempsey. The deleted scenes (also with director's commentary) are enjoyable,as well, and Hoffman often gives the reasons behind his editing decisions. The lengthy making-of featurette, "The Making of the Emperor's Club," is standard, gushing studio fare offering nothing particularly enlightening. There are also theatrical trailers, Web links, and bios.

    Lessons Learned

    I have always been a fan of Kevin Kline and this film demonstrates his great dramatic skill. The conflict he goes through when he realizes he bent the rules for his student and his student still cheats to win is well done acting. The film shows the reality of life's unfairness, when after dedicating himself to his school, his work and the students, he is passed over as headmaster. An excellent job of teaching morals and true character. At the end of the film, when he tells his student he cheated him out of his chance to get to the finals and the realization by the student as an adult with children of his own, that while it might have made a difference in his life, he knows that when all is said, he made his life without being Mr. Ceasar. Mr. Bell's double standards came back to haunt him when he admitted albeit unknown to his own son, that he cheated and he would do anything to get what he wanted. The son's face -- his first dose of reality that his father wasn't perfect, was an excellent point, too. Outstanding acting, wonderful musical score. A film that everyone should see.
