Won’t You Be My Neighbor? (2018)

Fred Rogers led a singular life. He was a puppeteer. A minister. A musician. An educator. A father, a husband, and a neighbor (and not, despite persistent rumors, a former Navy Seal). He spent 50 years on children’s television beseeching us to love and allow ourselves to be loved. He used puppets and play to fearlessly explore the most complicated and controversial issues of the day like race, disability, equality and violent tragedy. He spoke directly to children, and they responded by forging a lifelong bond with him by the millions. From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), Won't You Be My Neighbor? takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the Land of Make-Believe and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination. It’s a film Hollywood Reporter calls “a documentary you want to hug.” Bring tissues.
