She Said appears in an aspect ratio of 1.85:1 on this Blu-ray Disc. This turned into a more than satisfying presentation.
Overall sharpness looked good. Only the slightest hint of softness affected some interiors, and those examples occurred too infrequently to cause problems.
No issues with jagged edges or moiré effects occurred, and edge haloes were absent. I also failed to detect any source flaws.
In terms of colors, the movie featured a palette that favored a mix of the usual teal and amber. Across the board, the hues looked fine within those parameters.
Blacks were dark and deep, while shadows appeared clear and smooth. I thought the movie consistently looked positive.
I thought that the DTS-HD MA 5.1 soundtrack of She Said seemed fine but it didn’t excel because of a lack of ambition. Like most character dramas, the movie featured a limited soundfield that favored the forward channels.
It showed nice stereo spread to the music as well as some general ambience from the sides. Panning was fine, and the surrounds usually kicked in basic reinforcement.
Audio quality appeared good. Speech was natural and distinct, with no issues related to edginess or intelligibility.
Effects sounded clean and accurate, with good fidelity and no signs of distortion. Music was perfectly fine, as the score and songs showed positive dimensionality. This track was good enough for a “B-“ but didn’t particularly impress.
A featurette called Breaking the Story runs six minutes, 43 seconds. It brings notes from journalists/authors Megan Twohey and Jodi Kantor.
They tell us about their investigation and its adaptation into a movie. Though they produce a handful of insights, “Story” largely remains fluffy and oriented toward promotion for the film.
The disc opens with an ad for Till. We also get the trailer for She Said.
At its core, She Said covers a significant factual story. However, while well-meaning, the end result lacks real drama and tends to meander too much to hit the spot. The Blu-ray brings strong visuals, adequate audio and minor bonus materials. As much as I want to like the film, it simply fails to connect as well as it should.
