Based on the true story of a real-life friendship between American television personality, musician and puppeteer Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. This is a movie that is both entertainment and spiritual toolkit.
Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism. After a jaded magazine writer (Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers (host of the long-running US TV show ‘Mister Rogers' Neighbourhood’), he overcomes his scepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America's most beloved neighbour. A kind of gentle and deeply affecting filmmaking that is completely original and reflective of Rogers himself, offering a powerfully affecting message about acceptance and understanding.
