PLIMPTON! tells the story of writer, editor, amateur sportsman and friend to many, George Plimpton. Using Plimpton’s own narration, the film is a joyful celebration of a life lived fully. Plimpton hung out with U.S. Presidents, played quarterback for the Detroit Lions, got Willie Mays to pop out in Yankee Stadium, photographed Playboy models, and played goalie for the Boston Bruins. He also co-founded The Paris Review, which became one of the most influential literary magazines in history. Filmmakers Tom Bean and Luke Poling feature every aspect of Plimpton’s life to create a portrait of this one-of-a-kind person.
