Comedian Mike Birbiglia sure knows how to make people want to see a movie: by telling them they’re going to hate it.  Oh wait, he actually just went “over board” and you’ll probably love his new comedy Sleepwalk With Me. The "heartfelt comedy" will be especially great if it has half the wit and charisma of the Vulture exclusive short that debuted today. Read More
Picked as the opening night film for the 2012 Sundance Film Festival, Hello I Must Be Going stars Melanie Lynskey as Amy, a 35-year-old who moves back into her parents’ suburban home seeking refuge following her divorce and begins an affair with 19-year-old actor, Jeremy (Christopher Abbott). Writer Sarah Koskoff says the film is a story she’s wanted to tell for a long time, a story “about somebody who’s always in the background of her own life.
