Overview

Dragonfly

Kevin Costner stars in the supernatural thriller Dragonfly. Presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, Universal has done a very presentable job at making sure this transfer is sharp, clean and nearly flawless. With deep dark black levels and a plethora of solid colors, the image for Dragonfly looks to be almost reference quality. The soundtrack is presented in Dolby Digital 5.1 in English and French, as well as DTS 5.1 in English. Both the DTS and Dolby Digital 5.1 track include a wealth of directional effects and lots of spooky background ambiance noise. Each track is clear of any hiss or distortion that might otherwise mar the mix. Also included on this disc are English and French subtitles. Dragonfly features a number of extra features, starting with a commentary track by director Tom Shadyac. Affable and entertaining, Shadyac comes off as a very likable fellow with a lot of stories to share from the production and shoot. Next up is a 13-minute "Spotlight On Location" featurette which is fairly fluffy fare. This piece includes interviews with star Costner, director Shadyac, producer Mark Johnson and more pontificating on the film and what it took to bring it to the screen. 11 minutes worth of deleted scenes are included, though they are in rough form and don't add up to very much. Finally there is an interview with author Betty Eadie (who had a near-death experience herself), some production notes, cast and crew info, and a few promotions for other Universal movies.

Dragonfly This was one of the best movies I've ever seen. Doctor Joe (Kevin Costner) loses his wife to an accident while she is on a medical mission in Venezuala. The atheist Doctor has a lot to learn from his deceased spouse who tries desperately to communicate to him from the spirit realm. There's something important that he must know about. Dragonfly is a suspense-thriller and its bombshell ending left me with a locked voice and balling like a baby.

¿Meet Emily in the Rainbow¿ Doctors Joe (Kevin Costner) and Emily (Susanna Thompson) Darrow dreamed of curing the world¿s ills; but when an urgent call for aid in Venezuela comes through Joe doesn¿t believe it¿s feasible to respond particularly with Emily being pregnant. Emily disagrees and goes without him. Emily is killed during a landslide in the rainy season. Joe is devastated and throws himself into his work at the hospital where they¿d both been employed. Joe starts experiencing odd paranormal phenomena centered on his wife¿s favorite insect, the Dragonfly. He believes Emily may be trying to communicate with him. Friends tell him that he¿s delusional and that he just needs to grieve. While visiting the children¿s cancer ward where Emily worked, he receives messages from her conveyed to these children during near death experiences. They led him to return to the place of her death where her final gift to him awaits. Dragonfly was a realistic portrayal of the desperate measures, often found frightening by the living; restless spirits will take to get their message across. The only scene I had a problem with was Emily speaking through the organ donor; but still I won't rule the possibility out. Though the brain is gone that doesn¿t mean that another soul couldn¿t manipulate the vocal cords. It made for a scary scene.

When I got this DVD my husband groaned at the thought of a Kevin Costner movie. However, like me, he was gripped by the intrigue and tension of the story. Well worth watching.
