WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR?
MORGAN NEVILLE | 2018 | USA | English | 94 MIN
Generations of American kids grew up with children’s television host Mr. Rogers, but how much do people actually know about the kindly man in the colorful cardigans? In this affectionate documentary, Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom) separates the real Fred Rogers from his public persona, delving into the entertainer’s eventful life and the fascinating, inspiring, and sometimes surprising journey that led him to become one of the most beloved figures in television history. Mixing revealing interviews with Rogers’s friends and family with archival footage, Neville paints an insightful portrait of a complex man whose message of kindness feels more necessary than ever.
