Beauty Is Embarrassing is the irreverent and inspiring story of one of America’s most important artists, Wayne White, a man who began his career as a humble puppeteer. When the Tennessee-raised White moves to New York, his big break comes in love and as one of the creators of Pee-wee’s Playhouse. The film follows White through his artistic journey and the highs and lows of his art career. With his infectious Southern charm and playful childlike spirit, White maintains a passion and creative drive that’s unstoppable. He’s a reminder to us all that we should follow our passion. It’s those creative impulses that will lead us to where we need to go. Heather Haynes
