Blackfish (2013)

Our whole family fell in love with this documentary about Kevin Clash, the puppeteer behind the beloved Elmo. A feel good story of how Kevin never gave up on his dreams of working as a puppeteer even when his peers made fun of him. This has a wonderful message for children that if you work hard your dreams really can come true. Can't say enough about how great this one is (available for Instant Streaming on Netflix)
