Mistaken for Strangers

If you're a fun of indie alternative rock, then you probably know the band The National. However, Tom Berninger, brother of the band's frontman Matt Berninger, explores just how that fame changes things, especially with family, in the documentary Mistaken for Strangers, which just debuted a theatrical trailer. Following the band on their latest tour as a new roadie, he dives into the bands most intimate moments, much to the chagrin of the band itself. Tom is certainly out of his element, in a way that feels comedic, but makes for a unique perspective in this portrait of a band on tour with an outsider companion.

Here's the theatrical trailer for Tom Berninger's Mistaken for Strangers, originally from Yahoo:

The rock band The National is on its biggest tour to date, but newbie roadie Tom, brother of frontman Matt Berninger, cannot help throwing a wrench into the well-oiled music machine. Following the musicians and crew day and night, in places public and private, Tom is reprimanded time and again. As endearing as the boy next door and embodying the wherewithal of a Christopher Guest character, he brings a delightfully awkward humor into the serious world of the seriously awesome The National. Tom Berninger directs this very intimate documentary, Mistaken for Strangers, which arrives on VOD and in theaters March 28th.

This could be good. I'm not a huge fan of The National, but as long as the footage is interesting enough, who cares.
