While many of us outside of North America may not know of Mister Rogers, I discovered this unique, wonderful individual via extended friends and family, and also Morgan Neville’s documentary ‘Won’t You Be My Neighbor?‘, which shows us the real-life tale of Fred Rogers, a children’s TV personality, musician, writer, puppeteer (and more) who presented Mister Rogers’ Neighbourhood, a show that ran from 1968 to 2001.
This new film, A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood, comes to cinemas this November and stars Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers. This trailer is as warm and lovely as anything else I already know about the man, Directed by Marielle Heller, written by Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster, and inspired by the article “Can You Say. . . Hero?” by Tom Junod, watch it here and enjoy:
