Movie Info

Lloyd Vogel is an investigative journalist who receives an assignment to profile Fred Rogers, aka Mr. Rogers. He approaches the interview with skepticism, as he finds it hard to believe that anyone can have such a good nature. But Roger's empathy, kindness and decency soon chips away at Vogel's jaded outlook on life, forcing the reporter to reconcile with his own painful past.

Audience Reviews for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

    Heller finds ways to make this slightly unconventional even if the themes become muddled.

    It's a beautiful film of a beautiful person and his beautiful gesture of kindness. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood captures the essences of Mr. Rogers' charm thanks to a gentle and moving performance from Tom Hanks as well as a redeeming story that's loosely-based on true events; bringing out the neighborly-gesture and warmheartedness we need right now in all of us. 4.65/5

    A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is a powerful and moving film about friendship and forgiveness. Based on a true story, investigative journalist Lloyd Vogel interviews children's television entertainer Fred Rogers for an article, but it soon turns into something more as Rogers takes a personal interest in Vogel and his family. Both Tom Hanks and Matthew Rhys give great performances; particularly Hanks, who really captures the spirit and personality of Rogers. Additionally, director Marielle Heller does a brilliant job at homaging the look and feel of the Mr. Rogers Neighborhood show by integrating faux segments of the show as part of the film's narrative. Incredibly creative and inspiring, A Beautiful Day in the Neighbor is a touching film with a positive message.

    Not what I was expecting. Better than I was expecting. What a genuinely interesting film, I felt I was given real insight. I have no way of knowing if that's true or not of course, but I felt it, and that arguably matters more when it comes to filmmaking.
