Drawing's closed! Winner's been emailed!
Mike Birbiglia's Sleepwalk with Me opens at the Spectrum this Friday. The indie comedy -- from Birbiglia and the producers of This American Life (Ira Glass co-wrote the film) -- is in limited release (TAL has been urging people to request it at theaters).
We know of lot of people in the AOA crowd are fans of Birbigs and TAL, so we pulled together a drawing for what should be a fun night out: two free tickets to Sleepwalk with Me at the Spectrum, plus a $25 gift certificate for dinner at the nearby Capital City Gastropub.
Because Sleepwalk is (in part) about the dreams of Birbiglia's character, please answer this question in the comments:
What's your surreal dream for the Capital Region?
It could be a dream as wish for the future -- "My dream is to build a new Corning Tower out of bacon" -- or an actual (sleeping) dream that you've had. We'll pick one winner at random. That person gets the tickets and the gift certificate. The tickets are good for any showing of Sleepwalk during its one-week run at the Spectrum.
From the blurbage for Sleepwalk with Me:
The story: when an aspiring stand-up fails to express his true feelings about his girlfriend and his stalled career, his anxiety comes out in increasingly funny and dangerous sleepwalking incidents. SLEEPWALK WITH ME features Lauren Ambrose ("Six Feet Under"), Carol Kane ("Taxi"), James Rebhorn ("Meet the Parents"), Cristin Milioti (star of Broadway's "Once"), plus comedians Marc Maron, Kristen Schaal, Wyatt Cenac, Jessi Klein, Henry Phillips and David Wain.
The trailer is embedded above. And, due to the ultra-competitive nature of the film industry, Birbiglia and Glass have started a feud with Joss Whedon.
Important: All comments must be submitted by noon on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 to be entered in the drawing. You must answer the question to be part of the drawing. One entry per person, please. You must enter a valid email address (that you check regularly) with your comment. The winner will be notified via email by 5 pm on Tuesday and must respond by noon on Wednesday (September 12).
AOA is a media sponsor of the film at Spectrum.
