Being Elmo

JOY REVIEW

Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey is the story of the young man who is the voice and the personality behind Elmo, and he’s the first African American who was ever a Muppeteer, so this is a lot about Jim Henson and a lot about the Muppets, a lot about growing up poor, and mostly a lovely sort of statement of praise to a young man who saw his way out by being a puppeteer and was really undeterred, Kevin Clash. So, it’s really inspirational for kids. I think it tells you a lot about puppeteering you probably didn’t know and it’s really just a charming documentary, three and a half stars.
