A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood Featurette with Tom Hanks

-

Sony’s TriStar Pictures has provided VitalThrills.com with a new A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood featurette in which director Marielle Heller and stars Tom Hanks and Matthew Rhys talk about Mister Rogers. The anticipated film will open in theaters on November 22, 2019.

Two-time Oscar winner 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 (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.

The cast also includes Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Cooper. The film is directed by Marielle Heller (Diary of a Teenage Girl) from a screenplay by Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster (Transparent, Beautiful Ruins). The film was inspired by the article Can You Say… Hero? by Tom Junod.

Marc Turtletaub and Peter Saraf of Big Beach produce alongside Youree Henley (The Beguiled, 20th Century Woman). Leah Holzer of Big Beach executive produces, along with Fitzerman-Blue and Harpster. The project originated from a true story developed by Fitzerman-Blue and Harpster, first appearing on the Black List in 2013. Hannah Minghella and Shary Shirazi are overseeing the project for TriStar Pictures.
