Of the current cast on Saturday Night Live, Kyle Mooney has the strangest sense of humor.
Now with frequent SNL video short director Dave McCary, Mooney gives us Brigsby Bear, a movie he scripted and stars in about a young adult named James who’s been raised in captivity. Told by his parents (who are really his kidnappers) that the global population has been wiped out, he’s been raised on a children’s TV show that his fake parents (Mark Hamill and Micheala Watkins) have produced solely for him.
Nominated for Cannes’ Golden Camera and Sundance’s Grand Jury Prize, this indie effort co-stars Claire Danes, Beck Bennett, and Greg Kenner.
Brigsby Bear opens in limited release on July 28, 2017.
