Directed by John Huston
I really don't like James Joyce, but I am going to try not to let that color my review too much, as this is a separate entity and should be viewed as such. I can still feel my hatred surging through me, so I apologize if you like this movie.
In 1904, two sisters host a party in Dublin. Among their guests is Gretta and Gabriel Conroy, a seemingly happy couple. Of course, Joyce is too in love with his own style to give us much more in way of plot. Sorry, that sounded bitter.
I wasn't too impressed with Full Metal Jacket, Kubrick's last film in the book. Gee, I am hard to please lately aren't I? I am getting fussy in my old age. Anyway, John Huston similarly ends his reign in a rather lackluster fashion.
The film was released after John Huston's death.
