The Dead
My Rating:

3 Stars
The Dead Poster
Primary Location: First Saw: In Theatre Saw at/with: Wth Jessica at York Square
Rating: PG Year: 1987 Category: Drama
Director: John Huston Time: 83:00:00 min. Writer: Tony Huston

Mine: Very touching and interesting movie. Huston does not have much in the way of plot, but knows it and keeps the movie short. Very well done.
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: All-Irish cast helps Huston bring James Joyce's short story (from Dubliners) to life, a vignette about a lively holiday dinner party in 1904, followed by a melancholy confrontation between a loveless husband and wife. Not for every taste, this finely embroidered film celebrates time, place, and atmosphere, without much discernible plot, but with a host of marvelous characterizations. Huston's last film as director scripted by his son Tony.
