This documentary short finds Hilary Knight looking back on his life as an artist and his connection to the immensely popular Eloise books, written by Kay Thompson and illustrated by Knight. For 60 years, Eloise – the precocious six year-old who lives in New York’s Plaza Hotel – has charmed her way into the hearts of young readers, one of them being actress/director/writer Lena Dunham, whose Eloise tattoo led to a friendship with Knight, a creative kindred spirit. Whimsical and enlightening, the film features revealing interviews with Lena and Hilary, as well as family members, friends and writers who have been inspired by Knight’s work and childlike personality.
