The Living Wake Film Poster


Black comedy in which an artist convinced of his own genius issues invitations to his greatest performance yet - his own death. K. Roth Binew (Mike O'Connell) leads an existence few would consider glamorous or divinely ordained, but that isn't the way Binew sees things. Binew is sure of two things: that he is an artistic genius and that he will die on this day. As a consequence, he enlists his long-suffering friend, Mills Joquin (Jesse Eisenberg), to drive him around town on a rickshaw. From his moving platform Binew announces to all and sundry the special performance he intends to give that night. Will he finally live up to his promises of greatness or be unmasked as delusional?
