About the Movie
In this vibrant portrayal of Australian adolescence, Greta Driscoll's bubble of obscure loserdom is burst when her parents throw her a surprise 15th birthday party and invite the whole school! Perfectly content being a wallflower, suddenly Greta's flung far from her comfort zone into a distant, parallel place -- a strange world that’s a little frightening and a lot weird, but only there can she find herself. Equal measures Wes Anderson and Lewis Carroll, GIRL ASLEEP is an enchanting journey into the absurd -- and sometimes scary -- depths of the teenage mind.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: As it seesaws between Greta's conscious and unconscious minds, the movie begins to feel like a waking dream.
Fresh: A strange, savvy, big-hearted teen adventure that feels perfectly pitched to its target audience as well as those of all ages in search of something unquestionably unique.
Rotten: "Girl Asleep" thinks it's a stylishly resonant fairy tale about identity when the primary takeaway is an exquisitely curated slide show.
Fresh: Girl Asleep might be about an awakening, but it's not a sexual awakening, and this is one teen comedy in which, at long last, the geek doesn't get the girl.
One of my Favorite Rentals of 2016
This film has the Wit of Napoleon Dynamite, the aesthetic of a Wes Anderson film and the oddness that made Twin Peaks so great.
