The new comedy Sleepwalk With Me, from comedian Mike Birbiglia, looks wonderfully entertaining. When Matt (Birbiglia) and his long-term girlfriend, Abby (played by the gorgeous Lauren Ambrose) go to his sister’s engagement party, the couple is blindsided by people inquiring when the two will also get hitched. With an increasing amount of stress from work and the pressure to settle down and get married, Matt begins sleepwalking.
The trailer for Sleepwalk With Me gives me goosebumps when I watch it. I absolutely adore comedians who make films about relationships–they seem so much more in-tuned to the complexities and nuances of love than mainstream cinema’s portrayal of romance. I can’t wait to see this one.
Sleepwalk With Me is slated for limited screenings August 24th, 2012.
