MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS

A cross between AMERICAN MOVIE and EXIT THROUGH THE GIFT SHOP (with a dash of Christopher Guest milieu), MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS follows indie band The National on the road for a year through the eyes of singer Matt Berninger's bumbling brother, Tom. As tensions boil between them, the film Tom meant to make falls apart, and what evolves is a touching, authentic, and delightfully wry portrait of two brothers who could not be more different. – MC
