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?

Reviews:

Strong performances from Nick Stahl, Annasophia Robb and the rest of the cast are barely enough to save ‘Sleepwalking’ from stumbling in its own plot.
Despite the mostly negative reviews I’ve read about ‘Sleepwalking’, I wanted to see if Annasophia Robb really did live up to what the critics have been raving the past couple months. And she does, in a huge way. With a natural presence and believable acting, Annasophia displays one of the best performances I’ve seen from a child actor/actress. While she did a great job in BTT and Have Dreams, she doesn’t show any signs of the occasional stiff acting that she had in her previous films. Playing the part of the abandoned and emotionally troubled Tara is a very complex process that not many young actors can endure, yet Annasophia portrays her every emotion smoothly. Her chemistry with Stahl’s character was convincing and heartfelt. At first I was a little bit on the skeptical side on whether or not her performance was Oscar-worthy; but after watching this movie, I immediately brushed said thoughts aside.

That said, this movie is James’s (Nick Stahl) story, and he delivers. His performance really brought out the raw emotion that most of the film lacked. At certain scenes one could just sense the extreme pain and sorrow that James is going through as he grows more fond of his niece, only to see her get taken away, that and other aspects of his character makes a nice buildup to his climactic transformation near the end. Charlize Theron, though only present in a handful of scenes in the film, takes full advantage of them and helps create a truly believable troubled American family. Dennis Hopper is, well…Dennis Hopper. He can pull off playing any crazed and sadistic bastard in a snap and succeeds. Despite his character being as one dimensional as one can get, Hopper does a pretty good job making the film more morbid than it already is.

Positives aside, here is where the film gets it’s real flaws: the story. Besides extremely powerful performances by the leads, Sleepwalking’s story suffers from it’s overtly dark tone and predictability. Yes, it’s supposed to be a morbid take on abandonment and abuse, but unfortunately that’s all there is. The characters stumble from one unlucky bump in the road to another without any real relief for them. Besides the budding almost brother-sister type relationship that James and Tara develops, it doesn’t really stop the film from becoming increasingly bleak. And quite honestly, as much as I tried to defend it, I didn’t understand James’s notion to return to his abusive and bitter father’s farm. Once he mentions going there in the film, especially with all the comments that he heard from Tara, predicting hell in Satan’s frozen ranch wasn’t very far-fetched. I enjoy films that are open to interpretation and don’t give out easy answers. However, Sleepwalking’s ending hardly even tries to put some sort of resolution. It’s an all-throughout morbid storyline that DESERVED a true resolution, sadly it barely had one.

I enjoyed Sleepwalking. I loved the characters and the performances (Especially Robb and Stahl), but like the ratings that you’ve read throughout the web, it was just barely enough to carry the weight of a bland and predictable story.

a moving and atmospheric indie drama
“Sleepwalking” starts off a bit like “Frozen River,” focused on a single mother struggling to make ends meet in rural America (though it was actually filmed in Saskatchewan). But the movie quickly veers off in another direction, shifting that focus onto her 13-year-old daughter, Tara, and her younger brother, James (the girl’s uncle), who are suddenly forced to rely on one another for comfort and support when Joleen temporarily bows out of the picture.

When her boyfriend is arrested for growing marijuana, Jolene (Carlize Theron) and Tara (AnnaSophia Robb) are forced to move in with James (Nick Stahl), a soft-spoken, good-hearted fellow in his 20s who is two months behind in his rent and who barely scrapes by on what he makes at his low-paying construction job. Soon, Joleen has split the scene, James has lost his job, and social services has taken Tara to live in a foster-care facility. So James and Tara decide to head out onto the open highway, stopping off at roadside diners and motels, and staying one step ahead of the authorities who are in pursuit of them.

“Sleepwalking” is one of those gritty, slice-of-life dramas that sympathetically and accurately depicts what life is like for the working poor. It is rife with authentic details and rich in small town atmosphere. Director William Mahr and cinematographer Juan Ruiz Anchia really know how to extract the essence of a locale for mood and effect, making the bleak landscape and stark setting integral elements in the drama – an effect greatly enhanced by Christopher Young’s rich and evocative acoustic-flavored score. Superb, naturalistic performances by the three lead actors make us truly care about the people they are portraying and the things that are happening to them.

“Sleepwalking” is not without its flaws, however. For one thing, the movie undercuts some of its carefully crafted verisimilitude with its casting of “name” actors in a few of the key secondary roles – primarily, Woody Harrelson as James’ friend and work buddy, and an over-reaching Dennis Hopper as Joleen and James’ abusive dad. These parts would have been more effective had they been played by less-familiar actors (though I do realize that, without such star power attached to the project, a movie like “Sleepwalking” might never have gotten made in the first place). More seriously, the otherwise excellent screenplay by Zac Stanford falls apart a bit in the final third, resorting to stereotyping and hokey melodrama when it most needs to stay true to its characters and their situations.

Still, despite the patness, “Sleepwalking” is a quietly powerful, richly atmospheric tale of a group of troubled but essentially decent people struggling, despite their all-too-human weaknesses, to make their way in the world.
