Elmo came along long after my days as a Sesame Street watcher so I never felt the cutesie magic, but I’ve known plenty of little kids who adore him and it’s hard to deny the gently sweet appeal.
Whether you find Elmo cute or annoying, Being Elmo: A Puppeteer’s Journey is apparently a doc to watch. The story of the man behind the puppet was a big hit at Sundance in January where it walked off with the Special Jury Prize for documentaries.
It opens in NY on October 21.
