“I like you just the way you are.” With this phrase, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood introduced generations of American children to the genial,soft-spoken man who became a father figure to many thanks to his open, compassionate communication. Fred Rogers’s heartfelt words of wisdom helped children deal with complex social issues including death and discrimination.Approaching challenging topics with honesty and warmth, for fifty years he dedicated himself to meeting the needs of children. Oscar winning director Morgan Neville has crafted a remarkably resonant film wonderfully illustrated with clips from the show, striking animation and interviews with many people who worked with, loved and were influenced by Fred Rogers.

Reviews

Fred Rogers is gone and the world is a much scarier place; this film, like a gift, briefly transports us back to the calm we felt long ago.
