(Jamie Foxx)

Directed by Baran bo Odar in 2018, Sleepless is a crime drama starring Jamie Foxx, Michelle Monaghan and Dermot Mulroney in which actions have consequences.

Two crooked cops try to steal from the mob and in retaliation the ruthless mafia kidnaps one of their sons.

In Las Vegas, vice LVMPD policemen Vincent Downs (Jamie Foxx) and Sean Cass rob a shipment of cocaine belonging to entrepreneur Stanley Rubino (Dermot Mulroney), who intended to sell it to mobster Rob Novak, the son of a powerful mob boss. They volunteer to investigate the robbery in order to cover up their involvement, clashing with Internal Affairs investigators Jennifer Bryant (Michelle Monaghan) and Doug Dennison, who are suspicious of their involvement.

It is also revealed that Vincent is estranged from his wife Dena, who is getting remarried, and has minimal involvement in the life of his 16-year-old son Thomas.

Sleepless will be screened on M-Net Movies Premiere DStv Channel 104 on April 7, 2018, at 20h00. Rating 16VL
