Based on the best-selling book, Because of Winn Dixie is the heartwarming "tail" of a young girl ("Annasophia Robb") whose life is changed by a scruffy, fun-loving, smiling pooch she names Winn-Dixie. Directed by Wayne Wang (Anywhere But Here, Maid In Manhattan) and starring Jeff Daniels (Imaginary Heroes, Pleasantville), Cicely Tyson (Diary Of A Mad Black Woman, "Fried Green Tomatoes"), Eva Marie Saint ("North By Northwest", Superman Returns) and singer Dave Matthews, this film tells the charming story of a smiling dog and a young girl's bumpy summer of discovery that bring together an eccentric Florida town. The DVD is offered on a flipper disc in both pan & scan and widescreen, and features audio commentary by Jeff Daniels and producer Trevor Albert, as well as scene specific commentary by Annasophia Robb, the adorable newcomer whose magic wish for a friend helps the townspeople find the joy that they'd lost. In addition, the DVD includes two featurettes, a gag reel and an Inside Look at the upcoming "Ice Age 2: Meltdown".
