A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood
Friday - Sunday, February 28 - March 1
Starring Tom Hanks, Matthew Rhys & Chris Cooper

 

2-Time Oscar Winner, Tom Hanks is brilliant as the beloved TV icon, Fred Rodgers, in this heartfelt drama based on the real life friendship between Rodgers and Journalist Tom Junod

 

This timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism chronicles how this real life friendship came about, as the jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned to profile Rogers. As interviews progress, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America's most beloved neighbor.

 

Fred Rogers' widow, Joanne Rogers, has stated that Tom Hanks is the perfect actor to play her late husband.  In fact, just days before the films release, ancestry confirmed Tom Hanks and Fred Rogers are actually sixth-cousins.  It's also the 8th time that Hanks has portrayed a real-life person on film.

 

In an interview on CBS This Morning, Tom Hanks described playing Fred Rogers as "terrifying" due to Rogers' immense cultural and social influence. He credited Joanne Rogers, who served as a consultant on the film, with helping him to craft an honest and believable representation of her late husband. Joanne also gave Hanks several of Fred's neckties which Hanks wore in the film.

 

Every location change in the movie was depicted with a scaled down model of each place, much like in an episode of Mister Rogers' Neighborhood (1968) whenever Mr. Rogers himself goes from his house to another location.
