Kings and Queen (Desplechin) not OAR?

I've recently heard a lot of great things about this movie - don't know how I missed it before - but in looking to order the DVD on amazon, it says it is 1.33:1! I checked some other sites and they all have it listed as 1.85:1 so I assume that's right and amazon just has it listed wrong.

Sadly though, the OAR on imdb is listed as 2.35:1 and looking at review sites of region 2 DVDs, they all have it listed as 2.35:1.

Did Wellspring do us wrong on this one? Can someone who has seen it confirm that the Region 1 DVD is the wrong ratio?

I haven't seen the DVD, but the Netflix stream is scope. According to the DVD Talk review, the movie is presented 16x9 letterboxed to scope, but is a PAL->NTSC conversion.

Ok, cool thanks - other sites had the DVD listed as 2.35:1, but I'll trust dvdtalk - shame that it's a shady transfer though.
