Edward Wilson believes in America and will sacrifice everything he loves to protect it but as one of the covert founders of the CIA, Edward's youthful idealism is slowly eroded by his growing suspicion of the people around him. Everybody has secrets...but will Edward's destroy him?


The Good Shepherd is ostensibly a movie about the people who created the CIA, but it is actually more of an inquiry into what makes a person put his country before love, before family and before his friends.

Matt Damon discharged the titular character Edward Wilson well enough, but it was his on-screen wife Angelina Jolie's scenes, limited as they are, that delivers the emotional payload of the movie. And her scenes make the slow 168 minutes all the more interesting.

The Good Shepherd is neither a character study nor is it a psychological crime thriller. It has the elements of both, but in the final analysis it seems as if a myriad of capable actors took the lifeless film script by the throat and choked some spirit into it.


Bonus features include a slew of deleted scenes and an alternative ending.


The disc is available in English, Japanese and Thai Dolby Digital 5.1. Subtitles are in English, Japanese, Thai, Korean, Bahasa Indonesian, Cantonese and Traditional Mandarin. The visual transfer is excellent.
