Academy Award®-winner Morgan Neville brings to the screen, with great reverence and authenticity, the life of the iconic Mr Rogers, surrogate further to generations of American children through his popular public television show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood. A true gentleman and man of affable nature, Fred Rogers’ compassion in communicating with his youth audience, and his mantra, ‘I like you just the way you are’, brought a quietly radical approach to both children’s entertainment and psychology. Weaving archival material, animated sequences and highly personal interviews, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is a beautiful tribute and a rare salve of positivity in these turbulent times.
