Moving Trailer For Mr. Rogers Documentary Highlights The Power Of Kindness

Moving Trailer For Mr. Rogers Documentary Highlights The Power Of Kindness

The Focus Features documentary, directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), is described by Focus as an intimate look at America's favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers.

"Won't You Be My Neighbor?" will have its world premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival.

Won't You Be My Neighbor? is the latest project to help commemorate a momentous year for Rogers' legacy. Then-curator Dwight Blocker Bowers said, "Mister Rogers' style of comfort and warmth, of one-on-one conversation, is conveyed in that sweater". Less than two years after the PBS show went off the air, Rogers died of stomach cancer. Within the context of his long-running PBS series, Rogers was able to educate his audience without flinching away from hard topics like death and racism. "He was radical", fellow cast member Elizabeth Seamans, who played Mrs. McFeely on the show, marvels in the trailer.

If you grew up with Mister Rogers like some of us, you may have some ideas about what those 90 most-popular episodes will contain.

It truly is a lovely day in the neighborhood. While there has been some critiques of the documentary for not delving further into Rogers personally, the initial reaction seems to be one of a sweet nostalgia and a simple desire for more characters on television like Rogers.

In the following clip from the movie, Rogers shares his belief that "love is at the root of everything". "Mister Rogers makes us all want to be better people, and we couldn't be more proud to be a part of telling his story today".

Won't You Be My Neighbor? will receive a limited release in theaters on Friday, June 8.
