Fred Rogers brought kindness and warmth into living rooms everywhere with his public television show “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.” Now, Academy Award winner Tom Hanks and director Marielle Heller are attempting to recapture that spirit with their portrayal of Rogers in Sony Pictures Releasing’s awards contender “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” 

Starring Hanks as the famously gentle and generous TV icon and Matthew Rhys as a jaded reporter profiling him, “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” is written by Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster. In our current era of political strife and widespread cynicism, it’s comforting to know Rogers will be our neighbor again, this time on the big screen, Nov. 22.
