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.

Did You Know?
During production, Marielle Heller
insisted on the cast and crew working "French hours" (an industry term which means a 10-hour day without a break for lunch). She did this so she would be able to get home in time to get her son to sleep. She also did this out of respect to Fred Rogers, since she believed he would not want the cast and crew overworked to a point where they could not spend time with their families. 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
