dir. Dave McCary / USA / 2017 / 97 min.
Nostalgia is a powerful feeling, one that can make memories of your childhood feel like a magical world that was built just for you. For James, that feeling is a reality. Living in his parents' basement, he obsesses over "Brigsby Bear", a children's TV show made for a one-man audience. When the show ends in a startling revelation, James decides to recreate the show for himself as a way to make sense of his disorienting new existence. Kyle Mooney brings a sensitive and uplifting quality to James and is supported by an all-star cast including Mark Hamill, Greg Kinnear, Claire Danes, Matt Walsh, and Andy Samberg. Born from the memories of the filmmakers spanning from He-Man to Teddy Ruxpin, Brigsby Bear is an honest, offbeat, and profound love letter to the power of entertainment and creativity.
