The six Angulo brothers—Bhagavan, Govinda, Narayana, Mukunda, Glenn, and Eddie—were raised their whole lives in captivity in their four-room New York City apartment. In a scenario straight out of Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, their paranoid father, Oscar, locked the boys, their mother, and their younger sister in and forbade them to leave.
Some years, Oscar would grant the boys a trip or two outside, but some years, the boys would spend all 365 days locked in. To pass the time, the movie junkies would film DIY reenactments of their favorite film scenes, ranging from The Dark Knight to Pulp Fiction.
Filmmaker Crystal Moselle captured the boys’ bizarre true story in the gripping documentary The Wolfpack, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival and is now available in theaters, iTunes, and VOD.
In this exclusive clip from the film, the boys take their first train ride ever—a subway down to Coney Island, where they get their first taste of the beach.
“We never took a train before. We were always afraid of trains,” says one of the boys. “We were always freaked out about the kind of people that hanged around—we heard about the muggings, and stuff like that. It is weird, I admit. But there you go.”
“We are vampires,” adds another, as the boys all apply sunscreen. When they see the sand, they exclaim, “It’s like Lawrence of Arabia.”
