Homer & Langley
Homer & Langley is a fictionalized account of the lives of two reclusive brothers who lived and died in their brownstone home in NYC.  They  are found buried under tons of old newspapers in their booby trapped house. The societal changes taking place around them are told in Forrest Gump-like episodes which superficially touch their lives.
