CORK CINE CLUB PRESENTS
BROOKLYN BROTHERS BEAT THE BEST
THURSDAY 6 DECEMBER AT 8PM IN ST. JOHN’S CENTRAL COLLEGE
“a bro-mantic ‘Once’ if it had been directed by Cameron Crowe in his prime” – Seattle Weekly
Brooklyn Brothers Beat The Best (USA) is a whimsical indie ode to musical dreams about a pair of misfit hipsters who hit the road. Rookie writer-director Ryan O’Nan stars as Alex, who’s recently been dumped by his girlfriend and his band, and hates his drab job in a Brooklyn real estate office. Eventually his odd music gigs, including singing to kids while dressed like a moose, cause friction in his office and he loses his job.
Jim, a fan of Alex’s music, convinces him to begin a journey across the nation on a battle of the bands tour. While on this bizarre trek they meet the lovely Cassidy, an inexperienced tour manager who will either take them to the next level or break Alex’s heart.
Filled with a catchy sound track – click here to see the official music video – and great cameos from Jason Ritter, Oscar winner Melissa Leo, Wilmer Valderrama, Andrew McCarthy and others, Brooklyn Brothers Beat The Best celebrates creativity and the healing power of friendship.
