One of the most touching films to come out this year, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? exudes as much generosity and kindness as America’s favorite neighbor himself.
Won’t You Be My Neighbor? examines the life and legacy of Fred Rogers, the beloved host of the popular children’s TV show “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” Audience members are taken beyond the world of make-believe and into the depth of the heart and mind of a man who stood up for what he believed in and inspired a generation of children through compassion and the power of imagination.
As soon as the film begins, you will immediately feel that sense of nostalgia as you hear the famous opening tune to the show.
Fred Rogers was best known for his soft-spoken voice and colorful cardigans. Many people have grown up watching “Mister Rogers Neighborhood” knew just how much of an impact he left on the world, and that’s exactly what this movie does.
