A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood (2019)
Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in the Oscar-nominated biographical-drama A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood. The film tells 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 is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about kindness, love and forgiveness from America’s most beloved neighbour.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood is directed by Marielle Heller who recently directed Can You Ever Forgive Me? Matthew Rhys and Chris Cooper lead the film’s supporting cast.
