WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR
Directed by Morgan Neville
Is it any wonder that in our deeply divided society, the story of minister-turned-children’s-TV-host Fred Rogers is the most successful documentary of 2018? He assured generations of children they were special and they were loved. Witness his testimony before the Senate on funding for PBS — a true example of how to effectively reach across the aisle with neighborly respect. Oscar-winning director Morgan Neville’s loving tribute to Mister Rogers is a moving exploration of the life, lessons, and legacy of the iconic children’s television host and a plea for more civility in this world.
