Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey

Being Elmo: A Puppeteer's Journey ★★★★½

One of my favourite things ever was discovering Kevin Clash when he was interviewed by Rove. He was so entertaining, and humble, and inhabited the character so thoroughly, that you were just completely charmed. Even as someone who watched Sesame Street long before Elmo ever existed.

This movie tells his story, and so much more. It's a tale of someone who chased their dream, became friends with their idol, and in the process created something that changed children's lives the world over. I loved it not only for Kevin's story, but for the insight into the Henson universe as a whole.
