     Sleepwalk With Me. IFC Films. Starring Mike Birbiglia, Lauren Ambrose, James Rebhorn and Carol Kane. Writer & Director, Mike Birbiglia.  Co-Directed by Seth Barrish. Produced by Ira Glass. 

Mike Birbiglia
This is a comedy but it is based on the true story of comedian Mike Birbiglia who is a habitual sleep walker in real life. Sleep walking is a brain dysfunction where the mind cannot distinguish between things that go on in a dream and real life. So while they are asleep, they physically get up and act out what they are dreaming about like it is real. Some parts are funny but
others are serious like the time Birbiglia was dreaming that he was on a crashing spaceship and the only way out was to jump through a window in the spaceship. Unfortunately, the dream was so real that he actually got up and jumped out of a second story hotel window while still sleep and had to be hospitalized. This is one of those small, odd type of movies that only a select few can appreciate.
