Locked away in an apartment on the Lower East Side, the
Angulo brothers learn about the outside world through the
films they watch. Nicknamed the Wolfpack, the brothers
spend their childhood reenacting their favorite films using
elaborate homemade props and costumes. With no friends,
they feed their curiosity, creativity, and imagination with film,
which allows them to escape from their feelings of isolation
and loneliness. Everything changes when one of the brothers
escapes. The Wolfpack must now learn how to integrate into
society without disbanding the brotherhood. “Everything
about The Wolfpack is extraordinary, beginning with the
subjects of Crystal Moselle’s mesmerizing documentary.”
