(US, 2017) Director: Dave McCary. Screenplay by Kevin Costello and Kyle Mooney. Cast: Kyle Mooney, Greg Kinnear, Matt Walsh, Michaela Watkins, Mark Hamill, Claire Danes, Jane Adams.

25-year-old James is not so different from his peers, living in his parents’ basement, and spending his time watching and commenting online on his favorite TV show: Brigsby Bear, featuring a fuzzy bear who doles out advice like ‘curiosity is bad.’ What James (Kyle Mooney of SNL) doesn’t know is that his favorite show is made by his kidnappers, who keep him in an underground bunker – until the FBI breaks in and sets him free. It’s a brave new world for James, as he meets his bio-family, and tries to make his own movie about Brigsby Bear that, in spite of everything, he still misses. A completely original dark comedy by the Good Neighbor Troupe of Dave McCary, Kevin Costello and Kyle Mooney. 100 min
“It might feel outlandish if it weren’t a mere exaggeration of how almost all of us have grown up in front of the screen…” – Emily Yoshida, New York magazine.
