Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Looking at the handmade sets now, it's sort of surprising how cheap the show's production values were. But the lessons taught there were priceless.
Fresh: Neville is an experienced professional who knows what questions to ask and, working with editors Jeff Malmberg and Aaron Wickenden, how to assemble the answers.
Fresh: As Oscar winner Morgan Neville's timely, tear-duct lubricating documentary "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" makes clear, the easily parodied, often underestimated icon of children's television was a total badass.
Fresh: [Won't You Be My Neighbor] also contemplates the beloved TV host's battle on behalf of kindness and civility, one whose outcome appears very much in doubt.
I am so grateful!
I am so grateful that I grew up a time where I have the privilege and honor of being able to watch Mr. Rogers on television. There has never been a single thing ever since, that has come to the level of care and compassion for all children, and bring up subjects that no one else ever wants to talk about.
I’m looking forward to seeing this, Mr. Rogers was the real deal. A good Man. But I’m sure he wouldn’t approve of the PG-13 rating.
Mr Rogers is lit
