The Dead (1987)

This 1987 elegy, based on the James Joyce short story, was legendary director John Huston's last effort. Set during a festive holiday dinner, the film reveals the vulnerabilities of the characters as they revel with song, talk, and alcohol. Anjelica Huston stars as an unhappy wife who makes a sad confession to her husband that only reinforces his regrets.
