Check out the first official trailer for Mike Birbiglia's Sundance NEXT winner "Sleepwalk With Me," which stars the stand-up comedian and Lauren Ambrose as a couple dealing with longterm-itis, and also Birbiglia's increasingly bizarre sleepwalking habits.

Matt (Birbiglia) and Abby (Ambrose) have been in a non-marital relationship for eight years, which suddenly becomes more awkward when Matt's sister announces her engagement. Meanwhile, Matt is a bartender struggling to make it in standup, and wreaking havoc in the wee hours of the morning as he lumbers unconsciously around his apartment. As he deals with the sink-or-swim nature of his and Abby's relationship, he realizes that voicing his concerns about commitment actually help his comedy routines.

The film was picked up by IFC, though no release date yet.
