Nice guys finish last...

Offbeat family man with big dreams creates a candy-coated phenomenon, tiny jelly beans in a colorful array of wildly different flavors, but quickly has his Jelly Belly company stripped from him by big businessmen who know how to turn the product into a multi-million dollar corporate empire. The American Dream gone sour, and yet inventor David Klein doesn't really allow the pitfalls of fortune's flip-side get him down. Klein has his regrets--as anyone in his situation would; he has a quiet sadness that comes through in his little shrugs and half-nods, but he keeps shuffling forward. It's in his nature to hide the pain and make folks smile. This documentary, produced, directed, and photographed by Costa Botes, doesn't have big moments of high drama...but the sad reverie which permeates these interviews of Klein and his kooky family turn out to be just as potent. **1/2 from ****
