Mirren passes through entire scenes without a word, not needing to speak, as every feeling is writ large across her beautifully expressive face.

There is a small collection of extras on the DVD, starting with a straightforward, reasonably interesting but dry audio commentary.

The Clearing.. [creates] maximum tension without overtly manipulating the viewer.
