Brigsby Bear Adventures is a children’s TV show produced for an audience of one: James. When the show abruptly ends, James’s life changes forever, and he sets out to finish the story himself.
If you only saw the opening ten minutes of Brigsby Bear, you’d be forgiven for thinking that it was some kind of bizarre, post-apocalyptic survival drama. There’s an underground bunker with equations scrawled on the walls, gas masks, and animatronic animals scattered beyond the confines of the dugout. However, though the film is certainly bizarre, a post-apocalyptic drama it is not. Rather, it is a heart-warming comedy about a man-child trying to make his way in a world that he knows nothing about.
