A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Tom Hanks portrays beloved cultural icon Fred Rogers Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy Award-winner Matthew Rhys, The Americans) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about compassion, love, and forgiveness from America’s most beloved neighbor.

Tickets: $10 (members), $15 (nonmembers)

With clear-eyed rigour, Heller, Hanks and Rhys put aside cheap sentiment and earn this film's authentic heartfelt emotion.
Caryn James, BBC.com
Hanks is, not surprisingly, excellently cast, but it's Heller's direction and inventive aesthetic instinct [...] that sell the work so well.
