Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood. The film is a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism. It’s based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod.

A jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers. This causes him to overcomes his skepticism and learns about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.
