When people think of Jewish film, their minds tend to jump right to two subjects: religion and the Holocaust.

OK, you caught me, I was inspired to write this article on one of my less-than-stellar nights of sleep, and rose at the wee hour of 7 a.m. (give me a break, it was a Saturday), to make some notes. But I am not alone, research shows that 70 to 100 million American adults are struggling with some form of sleep disturbance.
