Lilies of the Field (1963) (** ½) Sidney Poitier may have won his first Academy Award for his role in Lilies of the Field-and he is good here-but it’s a shame the film itself isn’t a bit more substantial. It’s a simple, leisurely paced tale of a handyman (Poitier) who helps a group of nuns build a chapel that hasn’t aged all that well but, nevertheless still has occasional moments that stay with you. The disc includes an isolated score track, audio commentary and original theatrical trailer.
