And the Winner Is


By Mitch Albom

Directed by Austin Vahle


The comic story of a self-obsessed movie star who is finally nominated for an Oscar, then dies

the night before the awards. Outraged at his bad luck and determined to know if he wins (even

though he’s dead), he bargains with a heavenly gatekeeper to return to earth for the big night.

Along the way, he drags his agent, his acting rival, his bombshell girlfriend and his ex-wife into

the journey, in a wildly twisting tale of Hollywood, the afterlife, and how we are judged.
