Overview

Eric Laneuville directed his old St. Elsewhere castmate in the inspirational TV movie Hard Lessons, which comes to DVD with a standard full-frame transfer that preserves the original broadcast aspect ratio of 1.33:1. The English soundtrack is rendered in Dolby Digital Stereo. There are neither subtitles nor closed captions on this release. Although there are no supplemental materials of any consequence, fans of Denzel Washington should enjoy this typically powerful performance. There is little of interest here, however, for the average DVD consumer.
