From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), Won't You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at America's favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film 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.

“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” is a moving documentary about a pop-culture figure whose message continues to resonate. Director Morgan Neville (“20 Feet From Stardom”) clearly admires Rogers and the spirit of kindness that he represented, and the film makes no apologies for that reverence. This is simply a portrait of an artist who shaped a much-maligned medium — television — to his own ends. 

Rogers has been criticized by conservative pundits and parodied by comedian Eddie Murphy. But those backhanded acknowledgments only confirmed his status as a force to be reckoned with.

At a time when tolerance and compassion often seem to be under siege, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” reminds us that the softest voices often have the strongest impact.
