From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (Twenty Feet from Stardom), Won't You Be My Neighbor takes an intimate look at America's favorite neighbor - Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the Neighborhood of Make-Believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination. The documentary follows Rogers through three decades of hosting PBS's "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" as he speaks to children about important matters and shows how television could be used as a positive force in our society.
