It is not unusual as the synopsis says, but it sure is a feel good story not unlike some of Linklater's films. The documentary is obviously more preocupied with his first feature (Slacker) and his most famous (Boyhood), but all in between that is the story of the not-so-outsider filmmaker that wanted his films to have a little more depth and box office success. It sure is inspirational for young filmmakers.
