The Dead

  • 1987 82 minutes

Based on the eponymous book by James Joyce, this film takes place in turn-of-the-century Dublin, at an epiphany feast vibrant with food and spirit. The young couple at the party, Gretta and Gabriel Conroy, seem to have everything to be grateful for. But that night, a tenor's voice recalls poignant memories, and Gabriel learns of his wife's unforgotten young love. A profound elegy to the cinematic career of legendary director John Huston.

With Anjelica Huston, Donal McCann
