Mistaken for Strangers

Can you imagine what your life would be like if your brother was a rock star? Would you be able to keep your cool as you saw him surrounded by countless fans, while you where nothing but a roadie on tour bus? Would you have the patience to spend endless months on the road, keeping up with his exhausting touring schedule and surviving the backstage drama between him and his band?

“Mistaken for Strangers” is a fascinating music documentary that takes it upon itself to shed some light on indie rock’s most irresistible dandies, The National, directed by the frontman’s little brother Tom Berninger. And although this might be a film full of melodies by the New York-based band that started out from Cincinnati to conquer the world, it’s also a redemptive self-portrait of the man who made it, a painfully honest look at the life of a man who watches other people succeed around him while he flirts with failure at every turn.

      One of the most influential bands of the "Madchester"movement, the Stone Roses weren't just a hugely successful rock band, they defined the global music scene of the 80s and 90s.
