Hailed by Michael Moore as โ€œone of the best documentaries about a band that Iโ€™ve ever seenโ€ and by Pitchfork as โ€œthe funniest, most meta music movie since SPINAL TAP,โ€ MISTAKEN FOR STRANGERS is a truly hilarious and touching 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 loveable slacker - a filmmaker and metal-head still living with his parents in Cincinnati. On the eve of The Nationalโ€™s biggest tour to date, Matt invites Tom to work for the band as a roadie, unaware of Tomโ€™s plan to film the entire adventure. What starts as a rock documentary quickly becomes a crowd-pleasing journey about family, ambition, and the creative process.
