Overview

The cycle of life on Earth hangs in the balance when Death becomes emotionally involved in this romantic fantasy. William Parrish (Anthony Hopkins) is a tremendously wealthy and powerful man who oversees a worldwide multi-media empire. Despite the loss of his wife whom he dearly loved William is content with his life and he's very close to his two daughters Allison (Marcia Gay Harden) and Susan (Claire Forlaini). One night as William is fighting a hostile takeover of his company and Allison is planning an elaborate party to celebrate her dad's 65th birthday William begins displaying the symptoms of a severe heart attack and he is visited by a mysterious stranger Joe Black (Brad Pitt). Joe is actually the angel of death who has taken the form of a man who recently passed on to pay William a call. It seems that William is due to move on to the next world but (no great surprise) he doesn't want to go. Joe on the other hand is curious to know what life is like for mere mortals so the two men strike a deal -- William will have some time to get his affairs in order and Joe will wait and see what it's like to be a human being. Joe decides that he likes it very much when he falls in love with Susan but negotiating the slippery slopes of romance is no easier for Joe than for any ordinary man. Meet Joe Black is an updated version of Alberto Casella's play +Death Takes a Holiday which was adapted for the screen in 1934.
