Sleepwalk With me s an independent comedy about a struggling comedian struggling with his relationship and with sleepwalking. Co-written, directed and starring Mike Birbiglia, it is the big screen adaptation of his one-man show.
As his comedy career starts to (ever so slightly) take off and pressure increases on him to get married to his girlfriend of eight years, Matt (played by Mike) starts to have increasingly elaborate and dangerous bouts of sleepwalking.
This is a very enjoyable film, with some very funny moments dealing with some personal issues. It treats the subject matter and the people involved respectfully, whilst also keeping a good level of humour involved.
The cast is great and there are just brilliant performances all round.
This is something that might easily slip under the radar if you’re not looking for it, so I recommend you all go see it.
