IFC Films announced today that director Mike Birbiglia's critical and box office hit Sleepwalk With Me will be available to purchase exclusively on iTunes in the US & Canada from December 4th through December 17th. Beginning December 18th, fans will also be able to rent the film on iTunes.
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, Jesse Klein, Henry Phillips and David Wain.
Winner of a 2012 Audience Award at Sundance, comedian Birbiglia wrote, directed and stars in this sincere and hilarious film, based on his off-Broadway show and bestselling book. The film was co-written and co-produced by Ira Glass of This American Life. Birbiglia is nominated for Best Newcomer at the 2012 Gotham Awards, which he will also host.
Jonathan Sehring, President of Sundance Selects/IFC Films, said: "Sleepwalk With Me was one of our most successful films of the year, and we look forward to seeing even more people fall in love with it now that it is available exclusively through iTunes."
