Sleepwalk With Me

Film Connoisseur member Joni Berg has made a terrific suggestion.  As I work until 8 pm. during the week, I have changed the meeting date and time as indicated above.  If the time on Saturday doesn't work for you, please go when it's convenient, as this is just the type of movie this group is all about.  A suggested donation of $2 is always appreciated, as it goes towards the quarterly bill I get from Meet Up for maintaining the website.  Please also join us at nearby Al's Pizza afterwards, as discussion of the movie and non-mainstream movies in general is what makes this group worthwhile.  Joni's description of Sleepwalk with Me follows below:

Winner of a 2012 Audience Award at Sundance, comedian Mike Birbiglia wrote, directed and stars in this sincere and hilarious film, based on his off-Broadway show and bestselling book. It's also the first movie co-written by Ira Glass and co-produced by "This American Life." The story: when an aspiring stand-up fails to express his true feelings about his girlfriend and his stalled career, his anxiety comes out in increasingly funny and dangerous sleepwalking incidents. SLEEPWALK WITH ME features Lauren Ambrose ("Six Feet Under”), Carol Kane ("Taxi"), James Rebhorn ("Meet the Parents"), Cristin Milioti (star of Broadway's "Once"), plus comedians Marc Maron, Kristen Schaal, Wyatt Cenac, Jessi Klein, Henry Phillips and David Wain.

    It was an uneven but ultimately satisfying portrait of an aspiring comedian's journey to find his comedic voice while being forced to confront the complications of his love life, his parents and his sleeping disorder referred to in the film's title. Thanks to all who attended and joined our pleasant discussion afterwards @ Al's Pizza.

    I'm already a Mike Birbiglia fan, and this movie lived up to my expectations--funny, quirky, well done. Thanks for organizing, Chris!
