Title Best
Turning, TheR1

    The Region 1 disc was released by an independent company called Leo Films. It seems to have been their first DVD release, and it's a bit rough around the edges, with menus that are a bit painful to navigate, but it's not too bad (at least it has a menu!).

    The Region 4 disc is missing:

  • a menu
  • scene selection
  • trailers for three other Leo Films "attractions":
    • First Encounter (1:06)
    • Resistance (1:55)
    • Annie's Garden (1:41)
  • production notes (5 pages of fine print)
  • cast and crew bios (mostly 1 page each):
    • Michael Dolan
    • Tess Harper
    • Gillian Anderson
    • Raymond J Barry
    • Karen Allen
    • L A Puopolo (director, producer, co-writer...) - this was his first film as director
    • William B Boyle (producer)
  • notes about Leo Films and Westport, the DVD authoring house

    The Region 1 disc is missing:

  • nothing

    The Region 4 DVD is clearly inferior in terms of features, but the transfers are pretty comparable. If you really want to buy this film, the Region 1 disc is the better one.
