Sedona News – The Sedona International Film Festival is proud to present “Death Becomes Her” on Thursday, Aug. 17 at 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre.
“Death Becomes Her” is the second film in a month-long tribute to Meryl Streep with a special “Meryl-thon” series in August featuring a different Meryl Streep film each week.
Streep was nominated for a Golden Globe Award for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for her role in “Death Becomes Her”. The film won the Academy Award for Best Visual Effects.
When a fading actress learns of an immortality treatment, she sees it as a way to outdo her long-time rival in Robert Zemeckis’ 1992 comedy “Death Becomes Her”, starring Meryl Streep, Goldie Hawn, Bruce Willis and Isabella Rossellini.
When a novelist loses her man to a movie star and former friend, she winds up in a psychiatric hospital. Years later, she returns home to confront the now-married couple, looking radiant. Her ex-husband’s new wife wants to know her secret and discovers that she has been taking a mysterious drug which grants eternal life to the person who drinks it. The actress follows suit, but discovers that immortality has a price.
“Death Becomes Her” will be shown at the Alice Gill-Sheldon Theatre on Thursday, Aug. 17 at 3:30 and 6:30 p.m. Tickets are $12 general admission, or $9 for Film Festival members.
