I found "A Wake" full of surprises and a unpredictable ending. The story takes place in one location, in an old farm house where a dinner party is taking place to say good bye to a friend who passed away suddenly. Not to give to much of the story away, the cast has to retell how they were connected to the decease, and how he effected their life. The cast were all very believable, especially Kristopher Turner, who I thought was remarkable in the love scene. Every older woman's dream! The cinematography was good and I enjoyed how the camera man played with light. Not until the end of the movie did I realized that most of the film was ad lib. The editing was seamless and paced brilliantly. The movie just flew right by and I enjoyed the ride.
