Cannes 2017: 'Brigsby Bear' Review

Brigsby Bear, which stars Saturday Night Live's Kyle Mooney, premiered at Sundance, but I caught up with it in Cannes. He plays a twentysomething man who doesn't realize (A) he was kidnapped as a baby; (B) he's been living in a bunker with his captors; and (C) his favorite show is actually something his kidnappers made specifically to keep him entertained. When the guy enters the real world, how will he react? My review of this decently funny and thoughtful comedy is up at Screen International.
