Overview

Kept locked inside their family apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan for nearly all of their childhood, the six Angulo brothers are homeschooled by their parents and only allowed outside a few times a year. Led to believe that the wider world is a frightening place, the brothers learn to keep themselves occupied by watching hundreds of films in their living room. It isn't long before they begin meticulously recreating their favourites — from Quentin Tarantino’s Reservoir Dogs to Christopher Nolan’s The Dark Knight — and their growing desire for independence starts to chafe against the wishes of their controlling father in this fascinating documentary from Crystal Moselle (Sydney Exclusive Skate Kitchen).

"It's been a while since I've seen something that demands to be talked about with such urgency."
— The Guardian
"One of the most confronting and confounding true stories in a long time."
— The Sydney Morning Herald

Why You Should See This Film

Fate changed the Angulo brothers’ lives forever when writer/director Moselle spotted them walking briskly along Manhattan's First Avenue. Their waist-length hair and dark Ray-Ban glasses caught her eye and she quickly became embroiled in their extremely unusual (and well-spoken) milieu. Amazed by the ingenious ways in which they put together costumes and recreate myriad cinematic treasures, Moselle was careful to never cast judgment on the boys’ parents or their methods of childrearing. Instead, she simply documents the brothers in their home as they recount their entirely unique story. It really has to be seen to be believed.
