Film Details

Description: James Joyce's short story masterpiece becomes a classic film under the direction of John Huston. In Dublin, January 6, 1904, Gabriel Conroy and his wife attend a small dinner party given by his elderly aunts in celebration of the Epiphany. As the guests recall dinners past and favorite long-dead opera singers, Gabriel nervously anticipates the short speech he is to give at the culmination of the evening. Memory, loss, love, and patriotic allegiance recur as themes in conversations throughout the evening. When a famous tenor, who is one of the guests, finally succumbs to repeated requests and performs a short Irish ballad, we see Gabriel transfixed and deeply confused by what he sees happen in his wife's face. When she confesses to him the painful memories the song has triggered, Gabriel reacts with profound anger and shame and humiliation, and achieves his own epiphany as he is forced to confront and completely rethink his understanding of love.

CME Objectives:
