I was very shocked to fall in love with The Bridges of Madison County back in 1995. One, I didn't like books with big hype. Two, I didn't particularly want to revel in small town boredom. Three, had I known it was about adultery, I probably wouldn't have even watched it. Sure enough, by the time he hangs the necklace from the rearview, I wanted her to get out of the car and leave that life behind.

DVD Review: The Bridges of Madison County

13 years is a long time to wait for a special edition, and a small one at that. It would seem they might as well do a Blu Ray if they're re-releasing it. Still, the 30 minutes documentary makes a nice, intimate background piece for the film.

They got Clint and Meryl to talk about it, and she seems a bit more verbose than he, though he does his duty. They discuss the film's adaptation and development, a few production details and the themes. That's really all there is to it.

There's an audio commentary by the editor and cinematographer if one is into more technical details, plus a music video for the film's theme song. Otherwise, the film just exists, as it did for me in 1995, sucking me in unexpectedly and making me cry.
