Tell Them Anything You Want2009

A Portrait of Maurice Sendak

Sorry. This film is not currently available.

  • 4.5
From Lance Bangs and Spike Jonze, acclaimed director of WHERE THE WILD THINGS ARE, comes TELL THEM ANYTHING YOU WANT, a loving look at one of the most cherished and controversial figures in children's literature. 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.
