"Noelle" is presented in 1.85:1 anamorphic widescreen, and it's a rather strong transfer. The movie looks sharp and film-like on this disc, with good detail and strong fleshtones. Color saturation also hits the right marks, with being bold and at times striking without any sort of bleeding. The various snow-themed shots look rather lovely and pristine too. Noise, edge halos and blemishes pop up throughout, but it's never too distracting. This is definitely a solid transfer.

 

This is a pretty quiet movie, and the English Dolby Digital 5.1 track reflects that. Subwoofer use doesn't amount to much, and the sounds are pretty front-loaded. Dialogue is very clear and easy to hear, while basic sound effects (footsteps, doors opening, etc.) sound natural, there's not much in the surround department. Creating the most ambience and feeling is the music, namely the score from composer Andrew Ingkavet. This is a decent track that fits the movie, just don't expect anything to really show off your sound system.

English subtitles and English closed captions through your TV are available. 

 



Nothing.
 
 

"Noelle" is a film with heavy religious subtext, and seems to have been made with faith-based families in mind. The DVD has no extras, but the film sports a modest presentation. If you're interested, "Noelle" might be worth a rental.
