The Sleepwalker

Back in 2012, Brady Corbet brought the theiller Simon Killer to the Sundance Film Festival, and now he's heading back to the independent showcase with The Sleepwalker, which is part of the In-Competition line-up this year. This time, Corbet co-writes the film with director Mona Fastvold, and he also stars in the film with Christopher Abbott of the HBO series "Girls." Two sisters (Gitte Witt and Stephanie Ellis) find themselves under the same roof with their significant others, and secrets from their childhood begin to emerge, making for tension and envy. It looks like a tense but quiet thriller, perfect for Sundance. Watch!

Here's the first trailer for Mona Fastvold's The Sleepwalker from The Playlist:

The Sleepwalker is directed by Mona Fastvold (an actress making her feature directorial debut) from a script she co-wrote with Brady Corbet (Simon Killer). A young couple, Kaia and Andrew (Gitte Witt and Christopher Abbott) are renovating Kaia's secluded family estate, but are disrupted by the unexpected arrival of Kaia’s sister, Christine (Stephane Ellis), and her fiance, Ira (Corbet). 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 tangled perception of reality, which may have begun to alter her own. When one of the four goes missing, the three left behind are flung into upheaval trying to fill in the blanks. The film premieres at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival but has no release date yet.

I liked this better when it was called "Martha Marcy May Marlene."

Corbet's performance in Karaoke was amazing. Would see this in a hearbeat for him, but overall, this still looks amazing. Can't wait to get my hands on it.
