Based on the story “Death Takes A Holiday”, Brad Pitt plays Death in this romantic drama. Death comes to take Bill Parish (played by the fantastic Anthony Hopkins) but gives him a last few precious days so that Death may roam the earth disguised as a human, looking for a reason to live. The movie is full of many quotable lines that really make you think about life, death, and what you have done during your time here.
“You wanna know? I’ll tell you. You’re looking at a man who is not walking through the valley of the shadow of death. He’s galloping into it. At the same time, the business he built with his own hands and head has been commandeered by a couple of cheap pirates. Oh, yes! I almost forgot. My daughter’s fallen in love with Death.” –William Parrish.
