Family secrets, dysfunction, and tension — no, we’re not describing your upcoming Thanksgiving weekend. Instead, these are the feelings bubbling beneath the surface of “The Sleepwalker,” the unique and carefully calibrated upcoming drama that sets the mood on simmer.
Directed by Mona Fastvold (making her debut), and featuring Gitte Witt, former “Girls” star Christopher Abbott, Stephanie Ellis, and Brady Corbett (who also co-wrote the film with Fastvold), the story follows Kaia and Andrew, a young couple renovating her old family estate. A surprise visit from Kaia’s sister Christine and her fiancée Ira opens doors to the past that some would rather keep closed. And the uneasiness is right out in the open in this clip from the film, when Ira’s attempts to make peace aren’t welcomed by Andrew.
“The Sleepwalker” hits VOD and opens in limited release on November 21st. Read our review and watch below.
