For anyone who enjoys the pre-Classical Hollywood Cinema silent feature, I highly recommend this film.
"Way Down East" is, like many of Griffith's films with Gish (Broken Blossoms, True Heart Susie, etc.), a story of love's virtue overcoming circumstance.
So, if you have the equipment to watch and listen in HD, upgrading from DVD to Blu-ray for "Way Down East" is worth it!
