‘The Wolfpack’

the-wolfpack-posterAs an observational documentary, The Wolfpack is fascinating – telling the story of the six likeable Angulo brothers locked up by their parents in an apartment in the Lower East Side of Manhattan. As they grow older, the boys entertain themselves enacting their favourite films in their entirety.
