From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), Won't You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at America's favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.

"We tend to develop a thick, cold skin of cynicism over the years. Won't You Be My Neighbor? skillfully peels that away, so viewers can remember one of Mister Rogers' most important lessons: that it's okay to feel." - Noel Murray, AV Club

"The film is touching, sometimes saccharine, and other times bluntly honest, but it works best as a fascinating reminder that Rogers was trying to be more than a mascot of American politeness." - David Sims, The Atlantic
