It's Me, Hilary: The Man Who Drew Eloise is a portrait of Hilary Knight, the artist behind the iconic “Eloise” books, as he reflects on his life as an illustrator and his relationship to his most successful work. At 88, Hilary finds himself with the desire to work and limited access to the subject he would most like to work with: Eloise. What emerges is a portrait of an artist stunted by early success and haunted by personal failures, deeply devoted to his most famous creation. It's Me, Hilary premiered at Sundance and on HBO in March 2015.
