Waking the Dead is a 2000 mystery drama released by USA Films from indie director-actor Keith Gordon (Christine, Back to School, Jaws 2, Dressed to Kill, The Chocolate War) and features an all star cast. Fielding Pierce (Billy Crudup, Big Fish, Watchmen) has one ambition: to be President of the United States. His entire life is planned out to reach that goal. Only he didn't plan on Sarah (Jennifer Connelly, A Beautiful Mind). Sarah is a free spirited, radical human rights advocate. We meet them on the day she dies and then flash back to the inception of their relationship in 1972. He is The Establishment personified. She is an iconoclast. Two philosophies more incompatible could not possibly exist, but despite everything, they fall in love. The story then fast-forwards to Fielding's campaign for the House of Representatives ten years after Sarah's death. It is at this time that Fielding becomes obsessed with Sarah's ghost. He believes he is seeing her everywhere and that he is surely losing his mind. He begins to question his own philosophies and begins to lose his will to win the election.moreless
