Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the 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 neighbour.




  • A beautiful film from Marielle Heller

    By Horatio Guttersnipe
    Mister Rogers wasn’t part of British broadcasting and so, ever since the documentary about him some years back titled Won’t You Be My Neighbour, I’ve learnt to appreciate his legacy. This film is very watchable because it’s not entirely about Rogers but how his influence affected those around him positively. Tom Hanks gives a beautiful performance and its perfectly contrasted by the sceptical journalist Matthew Rhys plays.

    This is up there with As Good As It Gets, Groundhog Day and Green Book as one of my favourite movies. If you need cheering up, this is for you.
  • Cute story - Great acting

    Well... You’re quite never disappointed with Tom Hanks. And here again, an interesting moving story about how kindness and understanding can change peoples lives. A feel good movie for a feel good evening.
  • Dull and pointless

    By Ferranteguys
    Tom hanks is an amazing actor and I’ve enjoyed about everything he’s ever done. The premise of this film as intriguing and though it would be a great family film. The depressing family situation of the protagonist and the domestic violence was disturbing and detracted from the wholesome nature of the lead caricature and made the whole film unbalanced. It was not a family film for a drama but an odd mix with extremely weird miniature model scenes in it. Strange.
  • Fantastic

    Very enjoyable movie. I felt like I was watching Fred Rogers, rather than Tom Hanks playing Rodgers
  • Good film

    Good film tho never heard of mr rogers do however like tom hanks .. umm good but felt like maybe something was missing but i cant put my finger on it it was good but didn’t have that touch of brilliance you normally get with hanks.
  • Good, but...

    By Old Gubba
    Tom Hanks is almost always outstanding. In this film he also shines, as does his co-actors. But, like others have commented, there is something odd about it. Maybe becuase I do not have an American background it am missing the connection? "Do unto others..." is anexcellent philosophy, but commercialising the concept into a heart string puller? Maybe not.
  • Out of the ordinary feel good

    By JJO50
    This is an unusual film. Couldn't decide initially whether the Hollywood 'cheese' was too much but persevered and was really glad to have watched it. An inspiring film. The world would be a much better place if lives were lived by the values portrayed in this film. Living in UK had never heard of Mr Rodgers but good to know was based ona real person.
