Week in Rewind is pleased to offer a giveaway of
The Dead!

Own it on DVD November 3, 2009!

Thanks to our friends at Lionsgate for this opportunity!

Product description: "In this adaptation of the James Joyce short story, which takes place at an annual New Years Eve party in Dublin in 1904, Gretta Conroy, after hearing an old and sad ballad sung by one of the guests, confesses to her husband Gabriel 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.

It's the turn-of-the-century in Dublin at a holiday feast vibrant with food and spirit. A young couple at the party seem to have everything until that night, the man learns of his wife's unforgotten young love. This was John Huston's final film and was scripted by his son Tony, based on James Joyce's 1914 short story. Academy Award Nominations: Best (Adapted) Screenplay, Best Costume Design.

Rated BBFC U by the British Board of Film Classification. Shot in Ireland and California; Color by Fotokem. John Huston has the unusual distinction of being the only director who has directed both his father, Walter Huston, and his daughter, Anjelica, in Oscar-winning performances. John Huston's last directorial effort. He died August 27, 1987, at the age of 81. In this film, Huston worked with his son Tony, who wrote the screenplay adaptation of Joyce's short story, and his daughter Anjelica, who stars as Gretta Conroy. Won the 1987 National Society of Film Critics award for best picture."

The contest will end on November 30, 2009.
