Brigsby Bear (NC16)
Starring Kyle Mooney, Mark Hamill, Greg Kinnear
Directed by Dave McCary
Saturday Night Live’s Kyle Mooney plays a man who grew up in a desert bunker, where he was locked up by a childless couple (Mark Hamill and Jane Adams). Once freed, the first thing he wants to know is the fate of his favourite sci-fi show about a bear named Brigsby.
He’s so obsessed with the show that he enlists a bunch of kooky folks (including Greg Kinnear and Andy Samberg) to make a lo-fi Brigsby movie. If Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt and Bowfinger had a baby and that baby was raised by Wes Anderson, she’d be Brigsby Bear. Exclusive at The Projector. (***½)
