The Sleepy Man


Judith (Oona Mekas) comes home to find a man (John Hawkes) sleeping on her porch – one of the “sleepy people.” She brings him inside. Over the next 5 days the mystery of the sleepy man grows as Judith becomes entangled with a gang of roving youth and the ragtag militia who are dedicated to eradicating them. In Judith’s last encounter with the militia, they come to her house to take the sleepy man away, informing her that his job there is done. They march away, taking their “scout” with them, leaving Judith behind with more questions than answers. Based on the short story Sleepy People, by Jonathan Lethem. A magical realist love story.
