Amy is a seemingly normal young girl, adored by her parents and golden-boy fiance. Her future looks bright until her fiance suggests they tell each other their darkest secrets...things they have never told anyone. When Amy finally relents and reveals her secret, everything falls apart.
Bobcat Goldthwait (POLICE ACADEMY, SCROOGED) has written and directed a story that adeptly explores honesty, family, forgiveness, and courage. By frankly probing our relationships and idealization of the absolute virtues of honesty, SLEEPING DOGS is a funny and perceptive dark comedy. Sure to be one of the most talked about films of 2007, this is independent filmmaking at its best: raw, original, and edifying. Melinda Page Hamilton (DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES) stars as Amy.
