Movie Review: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, directed by Marielle Heller

(Five Stars)

“He’s just about the nicest person I’ve ever met.” “When you say it, it doesn’t sound so good.”

Amazing movie. While the rest of the world watched Frozen 2, we saw this biographical drama about Fred Rogers, inspired by the 1998 Esquire magazine article “Can You Say … Hero?” by Tom Junod. (Get Junod’s take on the movie and mister Rogers here.)

“There’s always something you can do with the anger you feel.”

Appropriately imaginative approach to telling how a journalist assigned to interview Fred Rogers has his life turned upside down—or more correctly, turned right-side up. This is not a children’s movie, not that it’s inappropriate for younger viewers—they aren’t the target audience.

“Why are you vegetarian?” “I can’t imagine eating anything with a mother.”

  1. Went to Frozen I, and found it very dull, so no chance of Frozen II. There’s a good chance I’ll go to the this movie – “Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.” Have loved Tom Hanks in every movie he has ever been in. Thanks for the review.
