  • The Dead

    1987. Great Britain/Ireland/USA. Directed by John Huston. Screenplay by Tony Huston, based on the story by James Joyce. With Anjelica Huston, Donal McCann, Dan O’Herlihy, Donal Donnelly. Set in 1904, during the elderly Morkan sisters' annual Feast of the Epiphany dinner party, John Huston's subtle film perfectly captures the social atmosphere and emotional nuances of what Joyce called his "ghost story." Anjelica Huston is exquisite, and McCann gives a career-best performance as her self-doubting husband. 83 min.
