I wanted to remind everyone that Jenna Dewan-Tatum’s independent film ‘Falling Awake‘ just had a nationwide release via IFC and Mega Films on Video On Demand TODAY and will have a limited theatrical release on January 29, 2010.
Jenna attended the premiere for the film last night in New York City. Below, you can check out personal behind-the-scenes pics that she tweeted out before the event and paparazzi photos of Jen with co-star Andy Cisneros at the premiere.
I love the personal photos, because she tweeted a pic from the plane thousands of feet in the air in route to New York, from Chan and Jen’s favorite NY restaurant (Habana Cafe), and from the makeup chair as she was getting ready for the event. We also get a glimpse of a very special ‘Falling Awake‘ tequila bottle with Jen’s likeness and see Jen featured on Instyle’s Daily Beauty Tip column for her look at the premiere. Enjoy!

Here’s what the film’s all about…
“‘Falling Awake‘ is the powerful story of Jay (Andrew Cisneros), a young man struggling to find his identity in The Bronx in a house crowded with family members and a neighborhood filled with loyal friends and dangerous enemies. A gifted musician, Jay hopes to leave it all and pursue his dream of composing and performing music. Once he meets Alessandra (Jenna Dewan-Tatum), a beautiful young woman who lives in Brooklyn, his determination to defy the expectations of his frustrated, angry father become even stronger. Jay is tied to his home through loyalty to his friends and to his brother, who has returned unexpectedly from service in the Marines. As he reaches toward a wider world, he is pulled back over and over by the cycles of anger and violence that have defined his life and neighborhood for so long. It takes love, a change of heart and a new understanding of life’s elusive chance at happiness to finally help Jay make the long, uncertain leap to a fresh chance.”
