This is for the authentic release.
Ira Levin's scary novel about forced conformity in a small Connecticut town made for this compelling 1975 thriller. Katharine Ross stars as a city woman who moves with her husband to Stepford and is startled by how perpetually happy many of the local women seem to be. Her search for an answer reveals a plot to replace troublesome real wives with more accommodating fake ones (not unlike the alien takeover in Invasion of the Body Snatchers). The closer she gets to the truth, the more danger she faces--not to mention the likelihood that the men in town intend to replace her as well. Screenwriter William Goldman (Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid) and director Bryan Forbes (King Rat) made this a taut, tense semiclassic with a healthy dose of satiric wit. The DVD release presents the film in its original widescreen dimensions. --Tom Keogh --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Just love this movie. Christopher Walken is always a joy to watch and Nicole Kidman is such a great actress too. Mathew Broderick also has a good part. Read morePublished on April 19 2009 by Kathleen Dore

I've loved this movie since seeing it on TV in the latter 70's. I also have the original DVD release which, sad to say, is far superior to this release. Read morePublished on June 30 2004 by S. King
