Sleepwalk with Me - Movie Synopsis & Plot

“I’m going to tell you a story, and it’s true....I always have to tell people that.” So asserts comedian-turned-playwright-turned-filmmaker Mike Birbiglia directly to the viewer at the outset of his autobiographically inspired, fictional feature debut. Birbiglia wears his incisive wit on his sleeve while portraying a cinematic surrogate. We are thrust into the tale of a burgeoning stand-up comedian struggling with the stress of a stalled career, a stale relationship threatening to race out of his control, and the wild spurts of severe sleepwalking he is desperate to ignore.

Based on the successful one-man show, "Sleepwalk With Me" engages in the kind of passionate and personal storytelling that transfigures intimate anguish into comic art. Bursting with sincerity, Mike Birbiglia's foray into the medium marks the invigorating emergence of a strong and poignant American voice, at once hilarious and heartbreaking.

MOVIE REVIEW

A struggling comedian suffers from sleepwalking but fails to incorporate that personal fact into his routine until halfway through the movie in Sleepwalk with Me, a surprisingly entertaining film that defies expectations and establishes itself as one of the most overlooked movies of 2012.
