Willem Dafoe plays an exclusive Manhattan drug dealer in search of redemption in this melancholy character study, written and directed by Paul Schrader. Famed for creating some of cinema's most haunted characters — Travis Bickle (TAXI DRIVER), Jake La Motta (RAGING BULL) and Julian Kay (AMERICAN GIGOLO) — Schrader in Light Sleeper introduces John LeTour (Dafoe), middle-aged, restless and hungry for responsibility and self-respect after his boss (Susan Sarandon) decides to go legit. “Wonderful, vintage fare from [Schrader]” — Washington Post.
