Wake Up, Leonard
Available on Prime Video, Tubi TV, Amazon Freevee
Part self-help nightmare and all comedy, WAKE UP, LEONARD follows someone failing miserably to "stay on the vibe." It's the story of a broken-hearted seeker with a tenuous grasp on wellness and too much faith in the universe. A feel good movie about feeling bad. We open on Leonard moving into a new apartment with help from his perpetually stoned sister, Orla. An out-of-work actor and overworked assistant, Leonard rushes to his boss's house to hang Christmas decorations, and receives an unexpected text from his ex that gives Leonard all the false hope and a little direction. An improvised feature shot during the pandemic, WAKE UP, LEONARD explores themes of mental health, queer love, and self-acceptance that asks, "It's a wonderful life?"
