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.

mentions how he wishes he and his son (Colin Hanks
) at 3 years old watched a half hour of Mr. Rogers a week so he could learn that it is okay to be sad. Hanks feels children don't learn the importance of expressing emotions from a young age and Mr. Rogers did an excellent job explaining this. See more
At the end of the movie, as Mr. Rogers is filming the outro of the episode he takes off his shoes, puts on his sport jacket, and buttons the top button of his sport coat as he approaches the door. Immediately afterward the director yells cut and Mr. Rogers walks behind the camera to watch the filmed scene on a TV screen. 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
