Fred Rogers was one of America's most beloved television personalities, bringing joy to generations of children across the country with his kind and gentle approach to the world around him. This film, based on a magazine article written in 1998, follows Lloyd Vogel, a cynical and jaded investigative journalist who has just become a father. When Lloyd is tasked with profiling Mr. Rogers for an article, he initially views the assignment as a fluff piece and struggles to believe that anyone can be so optimistic and caring. However, as the two men get to know each other, Mr. Rogers altruistic nature pushes Lloyd to reckon with his painful past. Tom Hanks gives a charming performance in this engaging and sweet story of fatherhood, empathy and maturity.
