 The Book to Screen series concludes with "The Dead," the final work by the legendary director John Huston. It tells the story of a husband and wife who have just enjoyed a Christmas dinner at the house of the husbandís aunt. Soon after dinner the couple starts tackling some prickly marital issues which result in an epiphany for both of them. Huston had a passion for classic literature, and this is a wonderful adaptation of the classic short story by James Joyce. The film was nominated for two Academy Awards, and is placed on Roger Ebert's Great Movies list. Steve Hunt will present. (1987, 85 min., PG)
