Netflix Streaming Pick of the Week: Sleepwalk with Me

Netflix Streaming Pick of the Week: Sleepwalk with Me

sleepwalkwithme

I’m loving all these great films that I saw at IFFBoston being available through Netflix! While we featured the closing night film of IFFBoston ’12 last time, this time its the opening night film, Sleepwalk with Me, directed by Ira Glass and starring Mike Birbiglia.

Sleepwalk with Me is an awesome, relatable, and entertaining film based of Birbiglia’s life – which he turned into a one man show, and has now adapted into this film.

Read our Review from IFFBoston ’12 here.

Ira Glass also did a great Q&A at IFFBoston which you can check out here.

We highly recommend this film, so head on over to Netflix and add it to your queue!

IFFBoston 2012 Lineup Announced

My favorite time of year is upon is, the Independent Film Festival of Boston (IFFBoston) announced today the films that will be featured at the 2012 festival. The tenth annual festival will take place April 25- May 2, 2012. The festival will take place at the Somerville Theatre in Davis Square, the Brattle Theatre in Harvard Square, and the  Coolidge Corner Theatre in Brookline.

Many of the screenings will feature special appearances, including directors Lauren Greenfield (Queen of Versailles), Bobcat Goldthwait (God Bless America), July Delpy (2 Days in New York), as well as co-writer Ira Glass (Sleepwalk with Me) – many more to be announced in the coming weeks.
