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
I grew up watching his show. Now I understand why I loved him so much. He made me feel loved. This movie overwhelmed me with his goodness and compassion. We need so much more of Fred Rogers in today’s increasingly divided world. There is so much that unites us.
Such a sweet story about a man who helped get the best of all of us!🥰
I’m a big burly man. I watched Mister Rogers Neighborhood as a child. I expected nostalgia and the story behind Mister Rogers the man and the Neighborhood. I wasn’t surprised or disappointed at anything in this movie. I was most surprised by my reaction to many parts of this movie where I wept openly and shamelessly. Other times we’re child like laughter. I’m not a fan of most movies and entertainment media. I’m never entertained by violence and killing. This movie was the most real thing I have seen in a long time. It it is holy sacred ground. Although I never met Fred Rogers personally, I like to think that I carry of piece of him wherever I go. Thank you to the producers of this movie. And most especially thank you Mister Rogers.
I forgot how much I loved mister Rogers as a kid. This brought back so many good memories. Mister Rogers was a real angel. What a great man. Wow we didn’t deserve him. Pure love and goodness. Thank you mister Rogers.
A wonderful walk down memory lane and so much more. Loved this film and can't recommend it enough.
This was an excellent documentary about a man who shaped my own childhood in ways I probably don’t fully realize. Thank you for reminding us of Mr. Rogers' tremendous impact!
Such an inspirational individual he was. Very highly recommended for all of humanity. The world needs another Mr. Rogers! Can’t say enough about his blessed soul.
After this film you want to be kind to everyone all the time; It completely embodies the spirit of Mr. Rogers.
