Director Sol Tryon's critically acclaimed debut feature is a timeless fairytale with a biting sense of humor. When self-proclaimed genius K. Roth Binew (Mike O'Connell, Funny People) learns his life will be cut short by a grave but unnamed illness, he decides to go out in style-with a living wake. Accompanied by his faithful assistant Mills (Jesse Eisenberg, Zombieland), K Roth spends his scheduled final day on earth revisiting all the people who touched his life - from the village prostitute, to his estranged mother - in order toinvite them to his grand finale.
Guaranteed to be a cult classic, The Living wake plays out like a combination of Monty Python's absurdist humor and Wes Anderson's delicate styling. What unfolds onscreen is a clever, whimsical fable about the nature of death.
