I had the privilege of seeing it with the cast in attendance. An absolutely incredible study of a suspended childhood in the center of the world: the story of six Angulo brothers who are hidden away from the rest of the bustling city in an apartment in the Lower East Side with their fragile mother and unstable father. To entertain themselves, the boys recreate their favorite films, from Tarantino to Wes Anderson, all the while remaining more wholesome, delightful and enlightened than most of the people who grow up with access to the world. The ambiguities and the clashes of cultures as the boys reassess their existence are fascinating, and so are the incomparable insights that the boys have for the outside world. Unforgettable.
