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.

Closed Captioned

After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about kindness, love and forgiveness from America's most beloved neighbor.

"Hanks isn't just good—he's transporting. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is a soft-hearted fable that works on you in an enchanted way. When the film comes out (at Thanksgiving), there won't be a dry eye in the megaplexes of America."—Owen Gleiberman, Variety
