This smart, feel-good indie flick from SNL alumni Dave McCary and Kyle Mooney is best approached with little knowledge of the plot, so try and avoid the spoiler-filled trailer at all costs.
Mooney plays a nerdy manchild who has been living in an isolated dome in the desert with his parents for 25 years. His life revolves around watching episodes of a cheesy ’80s children’s show featuring the eponymous character, which are delivered weekly on videotapes.
The truth behind his isolation and the origins of Brigsby Bear make for an ingenious twist that sends the film in an unexpected and inventive new direction. Look out for Mark Hamill, too.
