Penntertainment

From Wall Street to Hollywood: His WAKE Up Call

UPenn

Bill Shraga’s (W’93, Penn Crew Team) world premiere of the latest film he produced, entitled Wake, will be the opening night film at the 2009 Cinequest Film Festival on February 25, in San Jose, CA.

Per the film’s website, the synopsis of the film is as follows:

“When things get tough for offbeat Carys Reitman, she does what any emotionally isolated, modern girl would do – she goes to strangers’ funerals. At one fateful funeral, she unexpectedly meets Tyler, a man mourning his fiancee. Despite the warnings of her undertaker best friend Shane and her roommate Lila, she finds herself connecting to someone for the first time. Searching for answers, Carys goes to see her estranged mother to confront her past. And as she tries to open herself to the risks of love with Tyler, she realizes she may have more to fear than just a broken heart…”
