Short Film: The Boy who Couldn't Sleep

"The Boy who Couldn't Sleep and Never had To" is a coming-of-age science fiction film created as a proof-of-concept. In it, a comic book fan boy reveals his newly discovered super power to his high school friends. He can bring the things he imagines to life, but when word of his condition leaks, he's forced to go on the run from government agents. The film stars Tony Revolori (The Grand Budapest Hotel, Dope) and Jack Quaid (The Hunger Games) and was helmed by Mystery Team director Dan Eckman.

While it's not the greatest comic book film, it offers an intriguing glimpse into a larger world that I, for one, would love to see explored in-depth.
