Storyline

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.

Trivia

Tom Hanks claimed that the hardest part about playing Fred Rogers was slowing down his speaking tempo, and he would do meditation and relaxation exercises before filming to get in the right mood. Between takes, he would resume rapid fire patter and drink lots of coffee. See more »

Goofs

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 »

The movie that makes you want to be a better person
19 November 2019 | by pawarankitaSee all my reviews

This is the exact movie we all need to watch right now about forgiveness and compassion. I absolutely loved it. It was just so so good. Both Mathew and Tom both deserve Oscar recognition for their phenomenal performance. I truly recommend this movie for everyone. It makes you think about yourself.
