"This is a beautifully imagined portrait of the inimitable and beloved Jim Stevenson, a man who went where talent and the spirit took him which was almost anywhere.
New Yorker cartoonist, children’s writer, poetic journalist, he was the kind of artist who is regularly underrated because he can do so many things.
Saying the film does him and his work justice is saying a great deal—it is a life of prodigious accomplishment (not just the art but nine children!), of great joy and great sadness, a tragedy in the middle and a love story at the end.
And it’s all True!"
