Product Details

In 1973, health food store owner Miles Munroe (Woody Allen) enters the hospital for a routine gall bladder operation. When he expires on the operating table, Miles' sister requests permission to cryogenically freeze her brother's body. After 200 years, Miles is unwrapped by a group of scientists and awakens to a Brave New World of deadening conformity, ruled with an iron fist by a never-seen Leader. Miles is forced to flee for his life when the scientists--actually a group of revolutionary activists--are overpowered by the Leader's police. He eludes the cops by pretending to be an android, and in this guise is sent to work at the home of Luna (Diane Keaton), a composer of greeting cards who thinks that the world of the future is perfect as it stands. There's more, but why spoil your fun? The most visual of Woody Allen's "earlier, funnier films," Sleeper is a consistently funny sci-fi satire, its enjoyment heightened by the ever-growing rapport between Allen and his off-and-onscreen leading lady Diane Keaton and by a great Dixieland score featuring Allen himself on clarinet.
