There are ways to play a Region 2 DVD, but it will likely require an
investment on your part. If you're currently playing it on a DVD
player, you're probably out of luck -- you'll need a graymarket "code
free" DVD player (you can google that to find plenty of vendors). NB:
The movie industry is combatting code free DVD players by adding
another layer of authentication (RCE, or Regional Coding Enhancement)
-- I don't think this will affect you, as this is more targeted towards
squeezing every last dime out of the latest blockbuster.
If you have the option of playing the DVD on a computer, it will be
easier. Get a code free DVD player program. There are several
options; check out packages like DVD X Player
