Overview

From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet from Stardom) comes a crowd-pleasing documentary portrait of Fred Rogers, an unassuming minister, puppeteer, writer and producer who was beamed into American homes every day for over thirty years. Through his beloved television program Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, Fred and his motley cast of puppets and friends spoke directly to young children about some of life’s weightiest issues — from racism and Bobby Kennedy's assassination to divorce and the Vietnam War. As sensitively told and beautifully put together as Rogers himself, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? pays deeply moving tribute to his enduring legacy.

"An elegant tribute ... goes to prove sometimes childhood idols were entirely worthy of worship."
— The Guardian
"In these troubled times, it's a good feeling to see a funny, touching and vital doc that is both timely and timeless."
— Rolling Stone
"Heartfelt and moving ... it will resonate deeply with anyone who remembers Rogers befriending them from the small screen"
— Time Out

Why You Should See This Film

Life-affirming and heart-expanding, Won’t You Be My Neighbor? brings some much needed optimistic charm to our tumultuous times. Exploring the intense shift in the American psyche around the turn of the millennium that still reverberates today, the film harkens back to a period of American idealism that managed to be open-minded without being naive.
