Plot & Details

Directed by Luke Poling and Tom Bean, the documentary Plimpton! offers a look at the remarkable life of writer George Plimpton. Their subject became famous for trafficking in what he called "participatory journalism," in which he would do something unusual or extraordinary and then relate his experiences. Among his exploits were pitching in the major leagues, playing quarterback in the NFL, and performing a small part on-stage with the New York Philharmonic. The filmmakers use a wealth of voice-overs from Plimpton himself to narrate the movie, and also include interviews with various contemporaries and critics.
