Sundance Review: "Sleepwalk With Me"
For all of the important issues raised during the Sundance Film Festival, it's good to have a laugh once in a while. And just like last year's "Cedar Rapids" provided a much-needed break to Sundance audiences, comedian MIke Birbiglia's film "Sleepwalk With Me" is this year's welcome entry. Birbiglia, who co-wrote, directed and starred in this adaptation of his one-man show, is an affable but struggling stand-up who is struggling with relationship problems and an odd bout of sleepwalking. While the film is often hilarious, what is surprising is the tension and drama that the comic brings to the story when emotionally wrestling with his girlfriend of eight years. At the end of the film, you wonder how this ever was just a one-man show, with so much character development and relatable interplay between the stars. And did I mention that it's funny?
