Looking into the life and lessons of the legendary and iconic children’s television host Fred Rogers, Director Morgan Neville offers up this touching, reassuring, and heartwarming documentary. Told from the perspective of several family members as well as fellow actors and crew on the show, Neville helps to paint Rogers as a man who actually walked his talk– effectively communicating, showing love, respecting all, and teaching his philosophies and moral codes with a kind hand. This is the film America needs to see to be reminded of what we CAN be and perhaps how we SHOULD be. Fair warning, at the press screening of this film (imagine a room full of hardened viewers) not a dry eye could be found. This is a must see, and while there is some question as to why not all surviving members of the show aren’t featured in the interviews, the spirit and intent of this film is pure gold. Won’t you Be My Neighbor is rated PG-13.
