The poignant final film by Huston, based on James Joyce's short story from "Dubliners." At a Christmas dinner party in 1904 Dublin, Gabriel Conroy (McCann) discovers how little he knows about his wife Gretta (Angelica Huston) when a song reminds her of a cherished lost love. Beautifully captures the spirit of the story while providing Huston an opportunity to create a last lament on the fickle nature of time and life.
