"Tom Hanks fits the red sweater like he was born in it, but Marielle Heller's unique take on Fred Rogers' magnetism exceeds impersonation." - Toronto Star

"Just as Mr. Rogers used his show to talk about big issues with children in a tone that was softer and more halting than you'd expect, so does Heller stick to understatement in a way that threatens to become dull or sappy but never does." - The Wrap

"Impossible not to like, exactly as it is."
- Entertainment Weekly

"A lovely, soft-hearted fable that works on you in an enchanting way." - Variety

OFFICIAL SELECTION: Toronto International Film Festival
NOMINEE: Golden Globes - Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role in a Motion Picture (Tom Hanks)

Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on a 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 kindness, love and forgiveness from America's most beloved neighbor.
