Brady Corbet Searches for a Secret In ‘The Sleepwalker’ Sundance Trailer

Written by on December 24, 2013 

If one read our rundown of the Most Overlooked Films of 2013 they would come across one of my personal favorites of the year, Antonio Campos’ dark character drama Simon Killer. Led by Brady Corbet in his best performance yet, we’ve been itching to see where the talent would head next and as he puts together the pieces of his directorial debut, he’ll take part in another Sundance premiere, The Sleepwalker.

Directed by Mona Fastvold, who co-wrote the film with Corbet, the film follows two sets of couples under one roof and a secret that entangles them. With the film being on our radar since we saw those involved, we’re definitely looking forward to catching it at Sundance, so return for our review. Also featuring Girls star Christopher Abbott, Gitte Witt and Stephanie Ellis, check out the trailer below via The Playlist, as well as the official synopsis from the Sundance site, which has more information and stills.

A young couple, Kaia and Andrew, are renovating Kaia’s secluded family estate. Their lives are violently disrupted upon the unexpected arrival of Kaia’s sister, Christine, and her fiance, Ira…Prior tensions and jealousies burgeon as new alliances form and childhood patterns resurface.

As the days grow darker and the nights more disturbing, Kaia is forced to confront Christine’s increasingly tangled perception of reality, which in turn may have begun to alter her own. When one of the four characters goes missing, the three left behind are flung into upheaval trying to fill in the blanks.

The Sleepwalker premieres on January 20th.
