Meet the Angulo brothers. The six boys have spent their entire lives locked away from society in a run-down apartment on the Lower East Side of Manhattan, home-schooled by their mother, under the watchful eye of their strict father. Their only way to learn about the outside world is through the movies that they watch obsessively, while their wealth of creativity and energy is used faithfully re-enacting their favourite films with elaborate homemade props and costumes.
Startling and utterly compelling, The Wolfpack is an intimate study of life within the Angulo home, getting to know the boys on the cusp of the moment that the power balance in the household begins to shift and the outside world beckons.
