From Lance Bangs and Spike Jonze, acclaimed director of Where the Wild Things Are, comes A Portrait of Maurice Sendak, a loving look at one of the most cherished and controversial figures in children's literature. Featuring Tell Them Anything You Want, this is a deeply moving tribute to Sendak, a seminal talent whose conflicts with success and lifelong obsession with death have subtly influenced his work. Now 81, Sendak is best known for his book, Where the Wild Things Are, which he wrote twelve years into his career as a writer and illustrator. Wild Things would go on to become one of the most beloved and critically lauded children's books of all time and, much to Sendak's chagrin, would come to define his career. Through his own words, personal photos, and illustrations, Sendak offers a rare, intimate, and unexpected look at his exceptional life. A Tribute to Maurice Sendak also features James Gandolfini, Meryl Streep, Catherine Keener, and Tony Kushner honoring their friend and colleague.
