Being Elmo

4

The man behind the red furry body of Elmo.

It would take a particularly hard heart not to be charmed and moved by this relentlessly lovely documentary about Kevin Clash.

He’s the Muppet obsessed boy from the tough streets of Baltimore who followed his dreams to the rather less tough Sesame Street, becoming the man behind a small, furry red icon.

With Jim Henson’s creations riding high on the big screen again, fans will delight at Clash’s memories of working with the great man, while his own tale of a family – both human and puppet – that believed in his talent is as warm and fuzzy as the little monster himself.
