Film / A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

Go To

An upcoming biographical film by Marielle Heller, loosely based on Esquire journalist Tom Junod. In 1998, Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys), based on Junod, is assigned by the magazine to interview the highly popular children's television host Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks). He goes into the assignment very cynical about the world and expects to dig up some dirt that will sully the man's reputation, but it becomes clear that Rogers truly is every bit as kind, gentle, and sincere as he appears on his show, making the reporter question his entire worldview.
