The National are one of the most respected indie rock groups on the planet, but that casts a hell of a shadow over the ambitions of anyone related to them. That's the subject for "Mistaken for Strangers," a documentary slated for limited release on March 28.

The National are one of the most respected indie rock groups on the planet, but that casts a hell of a shadow over the ambitions of anyone related to them. Enter Tom Berninger: slacker, metalhead, aspiring horror filmmaker and younger brother to the National's lead-singer, Matt Berninger, who invited Tom to work as a roadie on the group's world tour.

The younger Berninger apparently neglected many of his responsibilities along the way, but his insistence on filming everything led to the rock documentary "Mistaken for Strangers," which is slated for a limited release on March 28. The new trailer promises a lot of sibling rivalry and bickering, but also some possibly poignant material on how fame changes lifelong relationships.
