In this remake of the 1934 film Death Takes a Holiday, Brad Pitt plays the part of Death himself, who comes to earth to learn more about life. While he's on terra firma, and absent from his customary duties, no one can die. Death's tutor is Anthony Hopkins, who plays a wealthy businessman with everything yet nothing. The Grim Reaper eventually falls in love with Forlani, a woman, quite literally, to die for.
