'Sleepwalk with Me' Dated and Detailed for Blu-ray

Posted Wed Nov 14, 2012 at 08:00 AM PST by

Mike Birbiglia and Seth Barrish's Audience Award-winning comedy at Sundance is planned for Blu-ray next month.

In an early announcement to retailers, MPI is preparing 'Sleepwalk with Me' for Blu-ray on December 18.

Bartender and aspiring stand-up Matt (Mike Birbiglia) is at an impasse in his career and relationship. Feeling pressure from his family and girlfriend Abby (Lauren Ambrose, "Six Feet Under") to get married after dating for eight years, Matt takes his modest act on the road to clear his head and jumpstart his career. He steadily improves his set, but the new material only increases his doubts about his future with Abby. Adding to his distress is a potentially dangerous sleep disorder that leads him to act out his dreams - fleeing jackals, winning an Olympic medal for Dustbustering, avoiding a missile strike, the usual things. Birbiglia and Ira Glass ('This American Life') co-wrote this charming, insightful, and very funny adaptation of Birbiglia's book and one-man show.

The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 soundtrack, and supplements include the original trailer.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $29.98.
