    Synopsis


    Sleeper
    In 1973, health-food store owner Miles Monroe (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? Sleeper is the most visual of Woody Allen's earlier films, and demonstrated a more pronounced rapport between Allen and his off- and onscreen leading lady Diane Keaton than had previously existed. The Dixieland score is performed by the Preservation Hall Jazz Band. ~ Hal Erickson, Rovi

      This is one of Woodys' best movies. Unfortunately, you can not get it or any other classic Woody Allen movies in wide screen, for some reason. They offer you a "wide screen side" but all that is, is the full screen version blown up with the top and bottom of the picture cut off. If you"re a purest, dont buy this DVD ( like I did ).

      No, I would not recommend this to a friend

      Awesome Film

      One of the funniest Woody Allen films ever. Good quality film transfer to DVD. By the way, this film was made in 1973 and was NOT filmed in wide-screen in the first place, so it cannot be made into a wide-screen format on DVD. What you see is the original.

      This movie is a superb example of the comedic and storytelling genius of Woody Allen. Sit back and relax or reminisce. Loved it then and loved it now.
