Mistaken For Strangers

Friday, March 28 - Thursday, May 1, 2014

Matt Berninger, the lead singer of the critically acclaimed band The National, finally finds himself flush with success. His younger brother Tom is a loveable slacker—a filmmaker and metal-head still living with his parents in Cincinnati. On the eve of The National’s biggest tour to date, Matt invites Tom to work for the band as a roadie, unaware of Tom’s plan to film it all. What starts as a rock documen- tary quickly becomes a hilarious and touching journey about family, ambition and the creative process.
