This looks delightful! And yes, that’s Patrick Stewart in a wig.
Now-retired film star Eve Wilde (Glenn Close) prepares for her wedding to husband number four, renowned English writer Harold Alcott (Patrick Stewart), after a whirlwind courtship. At her upstate New York home – in the presence of both Wilde’s first husband, celebrated stage actor Laurence Darling (John Malkovich), and their collective families (Minnie Driver, Jack Davenport, Yael Stone, Peter Facinelli, Noah Emmerich, Grace Van Patten) – the long summer weekend offers the opportunity for everyone to get to know each other a bit more intimately. As sexual sparks begin to fly, there are unforeseen consequences abound.
Kyle Mooney’s “Brigsby Bear” is an endearing story about a man who learns in his 20’s that his “parents” have been lying to him all his life, about everything. He believes the entire world has been contaminated and they live in a shelter to protect themselves from toxic radiation. He also believes they are his parents. And his primary contact with the outside world is through a children’s television show called “Brigsby Bear.” But it turns out they kidnapped him and his “father” (Mark Hamill) created the show just for him. Part of the charm of the film is the low-tech “show” that Mooney’s character is determined to finish.
Mooney has released an excerpt from the imaginary show, inspired by 70’s television and Teddy Ruxpin.
