Waking the Dead opens with a television image. In 1974, young Fielding Pierce (Billy Crudup) is watching the news, when he sees that his girlfriend Sarah (Jennifer Connelly) has been killed in a car bomb explosion (reportedly engineered by 'terrorists,' that all-purpose contemporary cultural monster).
Though some viewers might not compare producer-director Keith Gordon to John Huston as adaptors of literature to film, Gordon makes films which are regularly praised for their 'faithful' transfer of literary texts.
