A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood-Film Picnic NIght

Director: Marielle Heller
Starring: Tom Hanks, Matthe Rhys and Susan Keletchi Watson
Runtime: 109mins Cert PG
One American national treasure portraying another, as Tom Hanks dons the red cardigan of children’s TV presenter Fred Rogers. His earnest goodwill and emotional warmth in Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood raised a generation, but when journalist Lloyd (Matthew Rhys) sets out to write a profile, he is keen to scratch beneath the persona.

Marielle Heller (Can You Ever Forgive Me?) pitches the film perfectly between cynicism and purity, as Lloyd explores his own reasons for wanting to unmask Rogers. Warm but unsentimental, this is one of Hanks best roles, a beautiful watch even if you didn’t grow up in Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.
