This is a brilliantly, sweet film that offers a slice of history not easily accessible to most. Written and produced by the Yale Puppeteers' nephew, the viewer has a chance to witness, thanks to this film, the puppeteers passions, work and lives in the context of a time that just wasn't ready for them. A bit eccentric, certainly off beat and creative, the puppeteers and their story - as well as their place in history - is meticulously documented and tugs at the heartstrings. Politics, love, a despicable era in US history, theater, music, creativity and two unusual personalities shape this film in an wondrous way. I love it. It's one understated film that stays in your head for myriad reasons.
