Dir. Crystal Moselle. 2015, 90 mins. DCP. One of the most highly acclaimed documentaries of 2015, this Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winner tells the extraordinary coming of age story of the Angulo brothers—six kids who have spent their entire lives locked away from society in a small Lower East Side apartment. Everything they know of the outside world they’ve gleaned from movies like Reservoir Dogs and The Dark Knight, which they watch obsessively and recreate meticulously, using elaborate homemade props and costumes. For years that industry and creativity distracted them from their isolating predicament—but when one of the brothers escapes, everything changes. “Movies can change your life, but can they save it? A warm, disarmingly optimistic documentary” —Manohla Dargis, The New York Times.
