Tom Hanks portrays Mister 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 Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Primetime Emmy Award-winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about kindness, love and forgiveness from America’s most beloved neighbor.
Hanks has received an Oscar nomination for Actor in a Supporting Role – his sixth career Academy Award Nomination. He stars alongside Rhys, Screen Actors Guild Award-winner Susan Kelechi Watson and Oscar winner Chris Cooper under the direction of acclaimed filmmaker Marielle Heller (Can You Ever Forgive Me?, The Diary of a Teenage Girl).
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood has a runtime of approximately 109 minutes and is rated PG for some strong thematic material, a brief fight and some mild language.
