Crudup and Connelly outperform the material.
December 6, 2005
Waking the Dead is D.O.A., and none of its manifest good intentions are capable of resuscitating it.

An enticingly adult drama that frustratingly loses the nerve to follow its richest threads.

You can embrace this movie's message, which has less to do with political agendas than basic human decency and the enduring power of love. And if that's not enough to make a film worthwhile, we don't know what is.

Waking the Dead may put you to sleep.

Great performances by Crudup and Connely can't quite save it from a tedious and meandering script.
December 8, 2002
A moving drama about loss that is not what you'd expect.
November 7, 2002
Moving tale about love, regret and redemption boasts standout script and performances.

A dead-on rumination of love and loss... [that] suggests a delicate painting come to life or a bunch of wistful old Polaroids scattered on a living room floor.
