From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet from Stardom), Won't You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at America's favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.
A little kindness makes a world of difference.. Fred Rogers used puppets and play to explore complex social issues: race, disability, equality and tragedy, helping form the American concept of childhood. He spoke directly to children and they responded enthusiastically. Yet today, his impact is unclear. Have we lived up to Fred's ideal of good neighbors?. Won't You Be My Neighbor? Wiki
Wow what a beautiful story of a great person. I Loved This Movie and I HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT 🙂 I wish they would have interviewed Eddie Murphy because the story of those two meeting is legendary and Hilarious! Those who know what I’m talking about know how great that story is.
I think the world could use a few more men like this. It gives me a new appreciation of this man I’ve always known about but never knew. Inspiring movie
Even better than I was expecting. A shoe-in for Best Doc Oscar.
I just finished watching this amazing program about an amazing man. So inspiring! Such a great documentary! I see many hugs in my future this evening as I spread the magic of Mr Rogers and appreciate the people around me. Buy it, watch it, live it. You are special. We all are, even though we forget sometimes.
This is the most important movie you'll see this year, and perhaps if you've never had the luck to have grown up watch Mr. Rogers...we'll then you need to know him. This movie will remind you of how wonderful he was, and was an important person he was. Rent this and be glad you did!
