Dir: Marielle Heller
Starring: Matthew Rhys, Tom Hanks, Chris Cooper
Two-Time Oscar®-winner Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Captain Phillips) portrays American TV icon Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism. This charming and heart-warming tale is based on the real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and Tom Junod (Emmy award-winning actor Matthew Rhys, The Americans), a jaded magazine writer assigned to profile America’s most beloved neighbour. Forced to overcome his own skepticism, Junod learns empathy, kindness, and decency from the man who taught America how to feel. Lovingly crafted by Marielle Heller (Can You Ever Forgive Me?), this film has won over critics and audiences alike, earning Tom Hanks his first Oscar-nomination in twenty years.
