Storyline

Two-time Oscar®-winner 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.

In the playback of the scene he just filmed, he doesn't even touch the button on his sport coat as he walks toward the door. See more »

Quotes

Oprah Winfrey: What do you think is the biggest mistakes parents make in raising their children?
Fred Rogers: Not to remember their own childhood. I think that the best thing that we can do is to..think about what it was like for us and know what our children are going through.
Oprah Winfrey: But you know what? It's so hard once you get to be a parent. You always say, I will never do this, when your parents are doing it to you. You say, I will never do this to my child. And then you get to our age and you forget what it was like to be ...

A Beautiful Film
22 November 2019 | by bellasings-47917See all my reviews

I'm going to be honest, I was skeptical of this movie from the start, but boy am I glad I was wrong. I have adored Mister Rogers since I was a young girl & I didn't like the idea of someone else playing him. But Tom Hanks truly embodied Fred's spirit & presence to the point where I almost forgot it wasn't Mister Rogers!

This movie used so many small moments in big ways that were gut-wrenching & raw. It makes you feel seen & exposed in a way that is humbling. Mr. Rogers has always inspired me to grow & become the best version of myself possible & I'm ecstatic that A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood does his name justice. Truly a joy to behold.
