“The Truman Show” famously asked, “What if your life was created for TV?” Sundance sensation “Brigsby Bear” inverts that question: What if TV was created for your life? Enter James (SNL’s Kyle Mooney), whose life is built around his favorite show, “Brigsby Bear Adventures.” When James is forced from his isolated home and out into society, he learns that “Brigsby Bear” wasn’t a real show. To cope with the stress caused by this revelation, James resolves to complete the final episodes of the show himself, with a little help from some newfound friends. If none of this makes any sense to you yet, don’t worry, it doesn’t need to—the beauty of “Brigsby Bear” is the endlessly surprising joy that awaits you at every turn. Featuring a stellar cast including Greg Kinnear, Mark Hamill, and Claire Danes, and produced by the people who brought you “The LEGO Movie,” the film’s off-the-wall concept wins you over with its disarming sweetness and aching sincerity. Playful, curious, and wildly imaginative, the film follows its characters’ own DIY filmmaking ethos to achieve a work overflowing with creativity and humanity.
