Mistaken For Strangers (2014) Rated G, 75 mins. Hailed by Pitchfork as "the funniest, most ‘meta’ music movie since SPINAL TAP," Mistaken for Strangers is a truly hilarious and touching film about two brothers. Matt is the lead singer of the critically acclaimed rock band The National, and his younger brother Tom is a loveable slacker. What starts as a rock documentary quickly becomes a crowd-pleasing journey about family, ambition, and the creative process.
Live musical performance by Sean McInerney & Erik Livingston. Acoustic melodies are tempered with electric sensibilities as these veteran rockers unplug, trading heavy distortion for soaring harmony.
