Sleepwalk with Me

“I’m going to tell you a story, and it’s true. I always have to tell people that,” Mike Birbiglia states at the beginning of Sleepwalk with Me. Aside from a few minor changes, such as renaming his character Matt Pandamiglio, he’s right. Sleepwalk is based on Birbiglia’s one-man show, which details his time as a burgeoning stand-up comic. This period of time coincided with growing stress in a relationship with his girlfriend, and along with other supporting factors help pushed Birbiglia into bouts of severe sleepwalking. Sleepwalk is a bit jarring tonally, but Birbiglia is charming and able to carry the film through its storyline.
