Rating: 4 / 5
The film, “The Sleepless” centers around two insomniacs in New York who meet each other one early morning at a bodega and end up walking around the city in random conversation.
The two characters of Zach (played by Nyambi Nyambi) and Sophia (played by Rebecca De Ornelas) spend the entire film reciting dialogue that is really interesting and very well done.
I could totally see this film as a play. I particularly liked Nyambi Nyambi’s performance as he made Zach likable without being too pushy either. Sophia got on my nerves at times but that’s what I feel the character was supposed to do, to show how insulated her world had become and that instead of trusting Zach, she is cautious, overly so at times.
“The Sleepless” will not put you to sleep. It will engage you and make you ponder some of the greater questions in life.
