A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood
First look at the upcoming true life drama.


The subject of the recent acclaimed documentary Won't You Be My Neighbour?, Mister Rogers was an icon of American TV, teaching his values to generations of kids. Director Marielle Heller's A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood tells the true story of the friendship between Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks) and an initially cynical journalist (Matthew Rhys) assigned to profile him. Susan Kelechi Watson and Chris Cooper also star.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighbourhood is in UK/ROI cinemas December 6th.

Check out the first trailer below.


The official synopsis reads:

Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.
