Brigsby Bear

by Dave McCary Special Screenings

Superfan James is obsessed with the clever if quaintly goofy kids’ show BRIGSBY BEAR to the point of religiosity. A bright, sensitive young adult still living at home, he has grown up with this fantasy series, and the program has grown with him as well — getting more complex over the years. But to say James’ intensely protective parents have kept their son a bit sheltered is an understatement. One dramatic night, James’ insular world is upended. Through the disorienting but sporadically hilarious transition to a new life that follows, Brigsby remains James’ security blanket and, upon learning the series has been cancelled, he adopts the old adage that the show must go on… Festival hit BRIGSBY BEAR is a heart-warming fairytale about a man eventually saved by his own childhood naivety.
