A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood – Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A BEAUTIFUL DAY IN THE NEIGHBORHOOD, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.
Q-tips say: Yes, see it. It is a Mr. Rogers movie for adults. Mrs. Q says: It proves that the best thing to do, in many situations, is to be kind and forgive. An entertaining and touching film.
