How do you get the best material and work in the most interesting projects? Write them yourself. That's the path Brady Corbet has been taking, with the kind of success that is really putting the actor, writer and director on the map.

The Sleepwalker

How do you get the best material and work in the most interesting projects? Write them yourself. That's the path Brady Corbet has been taking, with the kind of success that is really putting the actor, writer and director on the map. And after making waves at the Sundance Film Festival in 2012 with "Simon Killer," which he co-wrote and starred in, Corbet returns to the Dramatic Competition category with another intriguing offering.

"The Sleepwalker," co-written by Corbet and Mona Fastvold (who also directs) and starring Corbert, (former) "Girls" star Christopher Abbott, Gitte Witt and Stephanie Ellis, tells the story of two sisters and the secret that stands between them. And as you'll see in this exclusive trailer, that bond from childhood gets tested in the present when the two sisters and their partners find themselves together under one roof. Here's the official synopsis:

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" will have its first public screening at Sundance on Monday, January 20th at 2:45pm at The Library in Park City. Watch below.
