Sleepwalking | Chicago Reader


Two talented young actors, Nick Stahl and AnnaSophia Robb, snatch this downer drama away from their typecast elders (Charlize Theron, Woody Harrelson, Dennis Hopper). Robb plays a hardened 12-year-old whose trashy mom (Theron) disappears on her; Stahl is the girl's dumb but tenderhearted uncle, who loses custody of his niece, rooms for a while with a stoner pal (Harrelson), then snatches her from her foster home and takes her to meet his estranged, son-of-a-bitch father (Hopper). The movie seems unusually honest in portraying the no-option existence of the working poor, but the story slips into melodrama in the last reel. William Maher directed. R, 100 min.
