Storyline

James "Speedy" Reedy is anything but. He's a twenty-something slacker sleepwalking through life in a Midwestern town. His older sister, Joleen calls him in the middle of the night after the police have arrested her boyfriend and tossed her and her 12-year-old daughter Tara on the street. James takes them in, then Joleen, who claims to have a plan, leaves with a trucker and a stash of drug money. James tries to cope, but soon he's lost his job, and child protective services places Tara in foster care. She's miserable. Can James wake up and find a way to be more than just a nice guy? A road trip to his childhood may hold a key, or it may be another bad dream. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Quotes

[from trailer]
Joleen: How old do I look to you, James?
James: I don't know.
Joleen: When a woman asks you how old she is, you think, how old does she want to be. And then you say that number. You should listen to that so maybe you find a woman for yourself.

terrific performances for a terribly sad story
18 November 2011 | by antoniotiernoSee all my reviews

"Sleepwalking" is the sort of flick having all the characteristics and nuances of dialogs suitably calibrated. Acting performances are excellent and it gets to change from a detailed social realism to a horror thriller story. The casting is right as well on the whole, with Theron's Joleen perfectly depicting a careless mother, though disappearing for most of the film and with Ms. Robb's Tara being one of the best presences in the movie. The locations, very sad, are perfect for showing desolation, a resentless bleakness and a grim atmosphere. This story/melodrama is honest in portraying a social contest with people having a no-option existence.
