First Look: “It’s Me, Hilary: The Man Who Drew Eloise”

Lena Dunham produces IT’S ME, HILARY: THE MAN WHO DREW ELOISE, 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.

As remarkable a character as Eloise is, so is Hilary: odd, temperamental, flamboyant, on the one hand fiercely private and on the other desperate to make his legacy known. At 87, 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 his most famous creation. PREMIERES MARCH 23 ON HBO
