| Wake, the movie
I was fortunate to see this film at the San Jose Film Festival last year when I visited my brother and his family. Our group of eight ranged in ages from ten to two senior citizens. To say the least, there was a fair amount of debate, but we decided we were intrigued with the title "Wake" and decided to see it.

It was such a delightful movie! We all enjoyed it. The story line was very different and clever (always refreshing!). We were not familiar with Bijou Phillips before this movie, but she was perfectly cast as the heroine or protagonist. I'm going to watch for more of her movies in the future. We especially liked the scene where she had to play dead for the nephews visiting the morgue; the entire theater was laughing so loudly!

I intend to buy the DVD soon for my collection.
