    What a difficult task was accomplished here. This movie captured the kindness, the moral values & the respect with which Mr. Rogers treated children he met or "spoke to" via television. He objected to the silliness that dominated early television content ,and was a visionary. He realized how much power the medium might have if it was used for educational purposes instead. But what is most amazing, is the depiction of the ways in which Mr. Rogers connected with all human beings. This documentary offers a comprehensive picture of many aspects of an intense, committed individual who made a positive difference in the lives of his audiences.

    If you don’t get this movie, we’ll that is on you! What a beautiful documentary on such a wonderful and kind man. I grew up watching Mr. Rogers and feel like it certainly had a positive impact on my life! When the movie ended, not one single person in theater got up. Everyone was quietly crying and reflecting. What a wonderful lesson!

    I didn’t realize until I watched this how much his show impacted me as a kid growing up. I feel like part of the foundation for my adult belief system and moral compass come directly from watching Mr Rogers Neighborhood during my formative years. What a truly decent and good man and how thankful I am that I grew up with his show and him in the world.
  • The most heartwarming documentary of this decade

    I saw this movie in theaters and rented it on Redbox a few times but I knew that wasn’t enough, so I downloaded it here. Any time I take life for granted, or I’m stressed out and think I can’t recover, this movie is what I need to watch. Sometimes I cry, but always good cry. I usually hate movies that make me cry, I would never watch them a second time, but this movie is heartwarming beyond compare.
  • I ❤️ this

    Mr. Rogers began airing a year after I entered school. When I had an opportunity to watch his show, I could not relate to the characters. A book of Fred’s quote collection offers us guidance and inspiration. In this documentary Fred models a depth of respect for the thoughts of fellow adults and children I’ve never seen before. His entire life centered on making quality television accessible to children out of respect for their growing curiosity, mental processing ability and emotional intelligence. This film highlights fifty years of Fred’s private and public life, which was filled with self doubt, private challenges and a succession of triumphs. Fred Rogers was a complex, extraordinary human whose method of educating children was beyond academic capacity at that time. Fred Rogers was a magnet for young children. Kids and parents across the USA adored Fred. Watching his life story taught me who Fred Roger’s was and how important his show was for children. I loved this documentary so much I watched it 3 times in one day! No act of kindness is ever too small. Those who aren’t convinced haven’t met Fred Rogers. Treat yourself.
