About Meet Joe Black

On the eve of his 65th birthday, media mogul Bill Parish (Academy Award winner Anthony Hopkins) gets the chance to cut a deal with Death: the Grim Reaper (Academy Award nominee Brad Pitt) will postpone Parish's death in exchange for a tour of life and the world. Taking on human form as Joe Black, Death's plan hits a snag when he falls for Parish's daughter. A stunning remake of the 1934 film "Death Takes a Holiday," Academy Award winning director Martin Brest spins this magical tale of romance and fantasy with a superb cast, including Academy Award winner Marcia Gay Harden.
