The Science of Sleep Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Inventive [[Feature~V278676~Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind~eternalsunshineofthespotlessmind]] director [[Performer~P290174~Michel Gondry~michelgondry]] takes a surreal trip through the mind of an introverted but wildly creative man whose attempts to balance his colorful dreams with his stark reality are complicated by the arrival of a beautiful woman into his life. Shy Stéphane ([[Performer~P294532~Gael García Bernal~gaelgarcíabernal]]) has returned to his childhood hometown to accept a new job. When the prospective employment offer fails to live up to expectations, however, Stéphane is at least comforted by the close bond he has formed with his creative-thinking neighbor Stéphanie ([[Performer~P25539~Charlotte Gainsbourg~charlottegainsbourg]]). Their blossoming romance finally awakens the sleeping confidence that the withdrawn Stéphane was previously capable of displaying only in his dreams, but Stéphane and Stéphanie find their relationship challenged when lingering insecurities prompt the smitten visionary to confront an old dilemma that can't be solved by the Science of Sleep. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
