I Am Big Bird: Review by Jeni Rizio

It is hard to say what hasn't already been said, so I will try my best.

Let me begin by telling you that, on a scale of one to five stars, I Am Big Bird is off the charts. Library of Congress Living Legend Caroll Spinney deserves all the best and more in a tribute, and Copper Pot Pictures delivers.

The love between Caroll and his soulmate Debi radiates throughout the film, as well as his love for his friends and family. Caroll demonstrates pure love, as a humanitarian and as a human being. He is as real and down-to-earth as it gets. Caroll sets the example of how people should treat others: with dignity, honesty and respect. 

Caroll has experienced a lifetime of challenges; this Emmy Lifetime Achievement Award winner demonstrates how he pushed on through them with his resilient perseverance.

Go see this film to be moved, awed and inspired.
