Oddball families have always been catnip for documentary filmmakers—the most famous example, of course, being “Big Edie” and “Little Edie” Beale, the bickering and delusionally eccentric mother and daughter immortalized in the Maysles’ rubbernecking 1975 classic, Grey Gardens. Now, 40 years later, Crystal Moselle has stumbled onto not only a terrific journalistic scoop but also a fine successor to that earlier film with her directorial debut, The Wolfpack.
Locked away in an apartment in downtown New York City was a story waiting to be told. The six Angulo brothers—Bhagavan, Govinda, Narayana, Mukunda, Krsna, and Jagadisa—were kept inside their whole lives by a father who feared that outside influences would corrupt his sons.
But in an ironic twist, the boys’ isolated adolescence is what led them to the public spotlight at the Sundance Film Festival, where the documentary about their unusual upbringing, The Wolfpack, won the Grand Jury Prize.
