Just a wonderful story about Mr. Rogers and what he believed in what a gentle sweet person he was but he inspired many
It's refreshing to watch a movie that's not dependent on computers and endless special effects. It really is a movie we all need right now. Simple but powerful messages throughout. Once again I'm amazed at the roles Tom Hanks can pull off, I hope he's recognized for this one at the awards next spring.
I'm not really sure Tom Hanks was the best one for this job. I love him, but this might be my least favorite of his characters. I wish we had read more reviews about the movie itself before going. We didn't want to see something somewhat depressing on our anniversary. The story was more about the journalist having psychological trauma than about what we expected to see.
there was a terrific documentary on Mr Rogers . Came out last year. Much better than the Tom Hanks copy
a brilliant movie !
Reminds us to look hard at what is good rather than the problem itself…
The best 107 minutes of personal therapy … feeling empowered and awakened!
Uplifting and worth seeing.
If you're tired of movies full of fluff, blood and garbage, go see this one.
Highly recommend this movie as a beautiful example of how a peaceful person can influence lives. If you're tired of movies full of fluff, blood and garbage, go see this one.
The world needs the wisdom of Mr. Rogers. We enjoyed the film and the memories.
Every bit of this movie was a precious moment. I hope it wins awards.
It's good but...I wouldn't watch it twice or say anyone has to go see it.
Tom Hanks, best person to play Mr. Rogers. Great performance !
I'm a longtime fan of the series and have every episode on blu-ray, so it's with great disappointment I say that at no time watching this movie did I feel I was in Mr. Rogers Neighborhood. Hanks, laboring under enormous mounds of makeup, never captures the essence of Mr. Rogers, and whoever was responsible for King Friday's voice couldn't have been more incompetent. Even Mr. McFeely was sadly miscast. Perhaps one day we'll get a movie worthy of Mr. Rogers, but this isn't it.
It's kinda weird.
A movie devoid of plot
Hmm, where to start? First off, there was a family there with their young children, I suspect the parents thought it would focus on Mr. Rogers and the young children would enjoy it. Wrong movie, this is adult content, not in a sexual way but in the philosophical way. So mum and dad, get a sitter, it's not for your kids. For me, a male, i cried 3 times and I'm not an over emotional type. The story is really about the writer and how Mr. Rogers gets into his life. There was some surrealism that i'm not sure was necessary. Conclusion - if you want to walk down memory lane about Mr. Rogers - this is not the movie you're looking for as Mr. Rogers is more a vehicle to a man's inner struggles (wow that sounds deep for an average man like me, lol). A good story but heed my advice on what you are about to see.
Very good message need more of that
This movie was dumb and stupid don’t know how it got 5 stars ??
A warm beautiful film depicting life and some of its problems. Great acting by all. Thumbs up for me.
