I’m a day off on the trailer this week, but I picked a good one for you! It’s called Sleepwalk with Me. Set for a limited release on August 24th, in the U.S.
The movie is about a stand-up comic, struggling with the idea of marriage, who soon begins to sleepwalk from the stress.
I looked up Mike Birbiglia, the screenwriter and director, (there are co-writers and a co-director too) and I like him! Honestly there are a lot of movies about stand-up comics or stand-up comics that decide to make a movie and it doesn’t work all the time. This however, even though I haven’t even seen it yet, looks like it does the “genre” well.
There are a number of awesome faces thrown in throughout the trailer: Lauren Ambrose, James Rebhorn, Carol Kane, Kristen Schaal etc.
It just looks so good and I want to see it…now, please!
Watch the trailer and let me know what you think!
Also if you want to watch some of Birbigs stand-up, because it looks like a lot of his material is going to be in the movie, here ya go:
