Ghost story

A heartbroken politician sets about Waking the Dead

Sarah's aura is vital to this struggle, and Connelly delivers the immense passion of a young woman who wants to give her all to her man, but knows she simply cannot.

Waking the Dead stands well on its own, without defense, but if the naked emotions here seem rote, or the jaded forget the glow of love (and the agony of its loss), these lines from Sixth Dynasty Chinese poet Shen Yüeh may spark the memory: "I think of when she comes -- shining, shining, up the garden stairs, impatient, impatient to end our parting. Tireless, tireless, we talk of love, gaze at each other but never get our fill, look at one another till hunger is forgotten."

Ever been there?

Jennifer Connelly and Billy Crudup are soul mates not quite separated by the great divide in Waking the Dead.
