From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), Won’t You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers.

A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.

CRITICS' PICK: "It is that emphasis — the earnest, critical attention to the public Mister Rogers and his legacy — that makes Won’t You Be My Neighbor? feel like such a gift." — A.O. Scott, New York Times


"It will make even the most flint-hearted cynic shed a tear." — Peter Keough, Boston Globe


"For the many generations that grew up with Rogers' friendly face as their guide, Won't You Be My Neighbor is like peering into the past with renewed clarity and wishing his civility had caught on." — Eric Kohn, indieWire
