“After 25 years of secluded existence with his protective parents in their isolated, off-the-grid home, James is tossed out into a new life in relatively daunting Cedar Hills, Utah. As his world upends, the most shocking revelation to James is that he’s the only person who has ever watched his favorite television program, Brigsby Bear Adventures. Struggling to adjust to the show’s abrupt end, he begins to see Brigsby’s lessons as his only way to make sense of a big, scary new world, and James decides to make a movie to end Brigsby’s story—and re-begin his own.”
Parts of the film remind me of The Truman Show. But well, this film is definitely its own weird thing.
Besides Kyle Mooney, the cast also includes Claire Danes, Mark Hamill, Greg Kinnear, Matt Walsh, and Michaela Watkins.
Release date: July 28, 2017.
