"Not since Grey Gardens has a film invited us into such a strange, barely-functioning home ... altogether fascinating. Five stars." – The Guardian

Six brothers live together in a cramped Manhattan apartment. Rarely permitted by their parents to leave their home, they live vicariously through films in their DVD collection, their seclusion channelled into activities such as recreations of scenes from Reservoir Dogs, The Dark Knight and The Nightmare Before Christmas and the construction of a Batman costume from cereal boxes.

Director Crystal Moselle spent five years documenting the life of the Angulo brothers, including their first forays into the outside world, creating a unique coming-of-age documentary. Both a fly-on-the-wall record of a bizarre sociological phenomenon and a fascinating insight into the nature of creativity and control, The Wolfpack is a riveting experience.

Winner of the Grand Jury Prize: US Documentary at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival.
