A George Plimpton Documentary

As a long-time reader of The Paris Review, I'm really looking forward to this film about the life of one of America's most interesting literary figures.  He was an "experiential journalist" who participated in sports just to be able to write about it.  He also founded and edited America's premier literary journal and published such giants as Jack Kerouac, Philip Roth, and Hunter S. Thompson.
