MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS is a truly hilarious, unusual, and moving film about two brothers, Matt and Tom Berninger. Matt, the lead singer of the critically acclaimed rock band The National, finally finds himself flush with success. His younger brother, Tom, is a lovable 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 the entire adventure.
MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS subject-filmmaker Tom Berninger and his brother Matt will participate in Q&A’s after the 7:10 and 9:30 screenings at the Music Hall on Friday and Saturday, December 5 and 6.
