The Dead (R1) in November

Lionsgate Home Entertainment have announced the Region 1 DVD release of The Dead on 3rd November 2009 priced at $14.98 SRP. The last film of John Huston’s celebrated career, The Dead stars daughter Anjelica Huston and is written by son Tony Huston. The film was adapted from James Joyce’s “The Dubliners” and takes place at an annual New Year’s Eve party in Dublin in 1904. Gretta Conroy (Huston), after hearing an old and sad ballad sung by one of the guests, confesses to her husband Gabriel (Donal McCann), of a long ago love affair she still remembers. This revelation causes Gabriel to question matters of life and death...and moves him to lament the lack of such passion in his own life.

A barebones disc, the film is presented in widescreen with English DD2.0 audio and English and Spanish subtitles.
