Tom Hanks will rip your heart out and return it to you filled with love and understanding. I’m not ashamed to admit that it actually did move me to tears, and happy tears at that.
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is a beautiful feel-good film about Mr. Rogers and the effect he had and will always have on people. It tells the tale of his relationship with Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys), an emotionally jaded reporter tasked to write a profile on him as one of America’s heroes.
If you’re interested on learning more about Mr. Rogers, see the documentary “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” (2018). You’ll get more of a feel for who he is. But if you’re in the mood for a touching story from his life, this is a good one to see. Take four hankies.
