James (Kyle Mooney) is unaware of the sinister forces that dictate he is the biggest fan, and sole viewer, of the children’s educational TV show Brigsby Bear. When the show dramatically ends, it becomes James’ mission to continue Brigsby’s story and bring his hero to a wider audience. Produced by Adam Samberg and featuring notable cameos from the likes of Claire Danes and Mark Hamill, Brigsby Bear is the endearing brainchild of Mooney and director Dave McCary, both veterans of Saturday Night Live. The refreshing lack of cynicism and irresistible sense of humour make for great fun, though there is real depth and sincerity here, too, as the film emerges as heartfelt tribute to the power of imagination and the creative process.
