Description

Great movies can change your life, but can they save it? No doc has been more buzzed about in 2015 than this stranger-than-fiction story about the six Angulo brothers who lived their whole lives in a Manhattan housing project, locked up by their overprotective father. Homeschooled and forbidden to leave the apartment with the exception of rare, carefully supervised excursions, the boys turn to movies to cope with their isolation, diligently transcribing screenplays and meticulously re-enacting their favorite films, complete with elaborate sets, props, and costumes. The kids use cinema to understand an outside world they can only glimpse from their windows, until 20-year-old Mukunda sneaks out of the house wearing a Michael Myers mask, ends up in court-mandated therapy, and the family is forced to enter society. Winner of the Sundance Documentary Grand Jury Prize, “The Wolfpack” is ultimately a film for anyone who has ever used the movies to escape.
