Being Elmo is the critically acclaimed documentary that tells the story of Muppets puppeteer---and Elmo creator---Kevin Clash. The film details the rise of Clash from a childhood of adversity in suburban Baltimore, to hobnobbing with Jim Henson and co. in New York City, to becoming one of the most respected puppeteers of his time. Even if you're not a fan of Sesame Street (which is unlikely, considering it's been broadcast in over 120 countries and is one of the most widely viewed syndicated children's shows of all time), the strength of Being Elmo lies in Marks' ability to use Clash as proof that if you follow your dreams, anything is possible. --
