Movie Review
 

Awake is a 2007 thriller/drama film written and directed by Joby Harold and set for release late 2007. It stars Hayden Christensen and Jessica Alba. The film is rated R for language, an intense disturbing situation, and brief drug use.

The story focuses on a man named Clay (Christensen) who is in love with a woman named Sam (Alba) but is unwilling to tell his mother of their relationship. We later find out this is due to Sam being his mother's personal assistant. Clay suffers from a heart condition which requires a heart transplant to be carried out by a doctor who previously saved his life and is now his good friend. However during the surgery he encounters "anesthetic awareness" and finds himself awake and aware, but paralyzed. To escape the pain, Clay has an out of body experience and uncovers some sinister plots. Meanwhile Sam must wrestle with her own demons as a drama unfolds around them.

Portion of the film's plot resembles an episode of Alfred Hitchcock Presents entitled "Breakdown" (1955), about a man (Joseph Cotten) who is about to be misdiagnosed dead because he is unresponsive on the medical examination table. The presumably dead man is saved from a premature burial when he manages to shed a tear, indicating that he is merely paralyzed and very much alive.
