Product Description

Nick Stahl (Sin City), AnnaSophia Robb (Bridge to Terabithia) and Academy Award® winner Charlize Theron

(Monster) star in Sleepwalking, a moving drama about the deep familial bond that develops between James

(Stahl) and his young niece, Tara (Robb) after the girl s mother suddenly leaves town. As old wounds from

James own turbulent childhood begin to reopen, he is forced to re-examine his life and, for the first time, discover

his true purpose. Directed by William Maher from a screenplay by Zak Stanford (The Chumscrubber),

Sleepwalking also stars Academy Award® Nominees Dennis Hopper (Hoosiers) and Woody Harrelson (The

People Vs. Larry Flynt.)

A dark and troubling fable leavened by streaks of hope and redemption, Sleepwalking follows Tara Reedy (AnnaSophia Robb, Because of Winn-Dixie) and her young uncle James (Nick Stahl, Carnivale) after Tara's mother Joleen (Charlize Theron) abandons them. After James loses his job and Tara suffers through the foster-care system, the two set off on a road trip that leads to a heart of darkness: The farm where James and Joleen grew up, where their father (Dennis Hopper) still lives. The bleaker side of Sleepwalking is redeemed not so much by the affection that grows between James and Tara (which feels a bit forced and precious) as by the emotional commitment of the cast. Stahl turns in what may be his best performance yet, delving into the weak and aimless qualities of James yet keeping an active presence in the movie. Robb and Theron, two emotionally compelling actors well-cast as mother and daughter, turn in high-quality performances; Hopper creates another portrait of chilling brutality, all the more terrifying for being so ordinary. The rest of the solid cast includes Woody Harrelson, Matthew St. Patrick (Six Feet Under), and Deborra-Lee Furness (Shame) as a coworker sympathetic to James. --Bret Fetzer

Format: DVD
New director William Maher and writer Zac Stanford previously worked together in THE CHUMSCRUBBER and the similarity of vision is apparent in SLEEPWALKING: both films deal with the empty shells of hollow people aimlessly seeking connection in a world that has become foreign territory. It is a dark, cold, brooding film that somehow manages to maintain our attention with the hope that the gloomy tunnel though which the characters are passing will have a semblance of light at the end.

Joleen (Charlize Theron) is the inadequate, loving-but-inconstant mother of twelve-year-old Tara (AnnaSophia Robb) whose reckless an aimless life leads to constant moving and lack of roots. Evicted form her latest residence Joleen and Tara move in with Joleen's younger brother James (Nick Stahl) whose similarly aimless life is defined by a trashy apartment and a mindless construction work job. Tara is sullen, disappointed in her mother's erratic, irresponsible behavior, and when Joleen once again takes off 'on a new idea', Tara is left with James - trying to figure out an existence for survival. James loses his job due to absenteeism, takes up residence in the filthy basement of his nerdy co-worker Randall (Woody Harelson), while the town cop (Mathew St. Patrick) reluctantly places Tara in a foster home to await the return of Joleen. Tara prefers life with James to her 'imprisonment' and the two take off on a road trip, seeking some degree of happiness and love in a world gone berserk. When James runs out of money, he heads to his old home farm for refuge, an unlikely endpoint as his and Joleen's childhood was warped by their abusive farmer father (Dennis Hopper).

11 of 13 people found the following review helpful By Joel Ramnaraine on August 2, 2008
Format: DVD
There's no doubt that I'm unlike many teenage boys out there today. Rather than hitting theaters for the hottest action-packed thrillers, I seem to be drawn to indie films of this nature. Here's a storyline that you don't see very often. Not getting into a summary, the film was extremely well produced and the acting was phenomenal. The viewer understands Stahl's innocent confusion and Theron's deep insecurities. For AnnaSophia Robb, you can be assured that this is a side of her the public has not yet seen. Skeptical of how persuasive her performance would be, the young actress doesn't disappoint as she proves that she can be just as gritty and dark as she was fun, perky, and easy to love in Walt Disney's, "Bridge to Terabithia." The actors could not have done a better job. I laughed at every intentional corny joke and chocked up right on point. The film takes a realistic look at how screwed up life can be with just the right amount of redemption to keep you going. Be warned, however, if you're the type that needs closure and/or a happy ending, this probably isn't the film for you. Though the storyline takes on a slower pace at certain points in the film, you realize that it is necessary in ensuring that the tone is kept at an appropriate level, right where it should be. Nevertheless, you'll walk away speechless. The cinematography is incredible--the entire film appeared raw and unfiltered. Juxtaposed with a captivating score, the emotion will somehow find its way leaping off the screen and hitting you in all the right places, at the right moments. There was possibly one major song in the film (which was repeated during the end credits) that seemed to be the perfect fit. And though I know a film is never 100% perfect, I personally don't think it could get any better. "Sleepwalking," is sure to wake you up--definitely a movie worth seeing.

Recommendations: If you enjoyed this, check out "Undertow" starring Jamie Bell and Josh Lucas.

Format: DVD
Joleen (Charlize Theron) is a woman with a nasty mouth who seems to want to make good choices, but because she's hanging onto past hurts, she makes one bad choice after the next. It's obvious that she loves her daughter, but since she's so lost she just doesn't know how to be a good mother. Her brother James (Nick Stahl) is a sweetheart - a cool, calm, collected, good-hearted man who just can't seem to get his life together. Tara (AnnaSophia Robb) is stuck between her Mom and Uncle James. She's an unhappy little lady with no real choices.
This movie was much different than what I expected. After watching the preview, I thought James and Tara were going to escape their troubles, start over and be happy with their new lives. But what they do is go from a bad situation to one much worse. James' father (Dennis Hopper) is an evil man who cares nothing about his family. Once he was introduced I could see why Joleen was so troubled, why she was so desperate for a man's love and especially why she had that nasty mouth. I also understood why James was like a scared little boy in a man's body.
I cannot say I enjoyed this movie, but I won't say that I totally disliked it. I felt for Joleen, James and Tara, I will say that. Their story was so sad, but there was a bit of hope in the end.
Parents: There is profanity, a sexual situation(not graphic)and the violence is not extreme compared to most movies these days.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
Perhaps the intensity of this film was easier to take on the small screen than it was in the theater. I thought it was well acted and flowed well from beginning to end. The characters moved both geographically and developmentally which helped to keep my interest. The ending was bizare, but believable given the twisted upbringing of the brother; a mixture of good and bad. The heart is a place which is large enough to house a fearful mixture of both pure love and pure hate, and who can say which will have supremisy in the end? His journey is not over by a long shot. I can see this showing up in the future on tv. It should hit a chord with almost every age group; the struggle we all have to make sense of the world, the unfortunate situations in which we all find ourselves at times, and the emotions those situations invoke in us.
