The Wolfpack is a complex, stranger-than-fiction tale of an unusual family, as well as a story of isolation, discovery, and the power of film. The six Angulo brothers and their disabled older sister have spent their whole lives in a cramped housing project on Manhattan’s Lower East Side, locked away from the outside world. Homeschooled by their hippie American mother and forbidden from leaving their apartment on all but the rarest of occasions by their Peruvian-born Hare Krishna father, the brothers—nicknamed the Wolfpack—rely on a collection of thousands of movies as an outlet to the outside world. They watch films obsessively, transcribing scripts and creating homemade props and costumes for elaborate movie reenactments that they then film themselves. Director Crystal Moselle meets the brothers just as they are at a crossroads: one of them, Mukunda, has snuck out of the house in a Michael Myers Halloween mask, paving the way for the other brothers to begin venturing out, too.
