A man A plan A canal presented free film screening opportunities for Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best – a quirky, dark comedy about a recently dumped twentysomething from New York who is on the verge of giving up on his goal of becoming a musician when his friend convinces him to go on a impromptu cross-country tour. With their signature toy instruments showcasing their “The Shins meets Sesame Street” songs, the tour takes them on a string of bizarre shows and disastrous encounters as they give one last attempt in reaching their childhood dreams before accepting the routine of adulthood.
Brooklyn Brothers Beat the Best stars Ryan O’Nan (who is also the writer/director of the film), Michael Weston (Six Feet Under), Arielle Kebbel (Gilmore Girls), and Academy Award winning Melissa Leo (The Fighter). The film has been shown at countless film festivals such as Toronto International Film Festival, Santa Barbara International Film Festival, and Northside Festival.
