Wealthy New Orleans real estate developer Michael Courtland (Cliff Robertson) loses his wife, Elizabeth (Genevieve Bujold), and nine-year-old daughter during a bungled kidnap rescue. Still plagued by guilt 16 years later, "Court" falls for the spitting image of his wife in the Florence cathedral where he got married. In a riveting reimagining of Hitchcock's Vertigo, Brian De Palma permits his grateful protagonist a second chance. Free of the graininess and fog of a prior disc presentation, this high-definition release restores the dizzying film's essential dreamlike quality.
