For the Angulo brothers’ entire lives, their universe has consisted of a Lower East Side apartment…and the movies. Prohibited from leaving their home, the six siblings instead allow their imaginations to escape by recreating favorite films like Reservoir Dogs and The Dark Knight Rises, transforming everyday objects into elaborate, if crude, props and costumes. After one brother ventures out into the real world, everything changes. Crystal Moselle’s sensitively directed film explores their wondrous, if unorthodox, upbringing and their newfound freedom.
