Film No. 74 (2017) October 14th. 11.00 AM LUNA PALACE, Leederville.
"Everybody says they can help me but no one can find me the next episode of Brigsby" (James comments in frustration not long after being infiltrated back into the world).
An unpretentiously feel-good film with shades of Be Kind Rewind, Being There and Forrest Gump all wrapped around a Bear. Imagine a baby is snatched from its family as an infant only to be brought up by a couple of eccentrics who write, shoot and produce a TV program, Brigsby Bear, exclusively for their "adopted" child. It's mostly all he knows, suddenly he is reunited with his legitimate family and filtered back into the real world, aged in his 20's. James Pope (Kyle Mooney) has much to learn. But most of all he is legitimately likeable, his fantasy bear takes his new found family and friends (not to mention us) on a marvellously uncomplicated journey. 9GUMS
