Did You Know?

Personal Quote:

I don't know what the causes of my insomnia are. My grandfather was an insomniac, so that could be relevant ... or it could be just biological. I am not blaming my parents, per se, for it, but indirectly, my parents were fighting or talking and that might be a cause. Maybe the film is a cautionary idea for people: make sure your children are sleeping before you fight.


Is insomniac. See more »
