So I actually bought this movie (on amazon video) a while back and watched it.

I have to say... This movie is absolutely amazing, and the work and everything Tom Hanks did to make this happen... Fabulous. I really love the story, but it does have a couple of sensitive topics. This is to be expected like in the original show.

Great Film with a Nostalgic Feel

Though this film covers some mature topics, as did the actual Mister Rogers show, it does so in a way that is not completely inappropriate. Their is a little violence, including a fight scene at a wedding, a man seen in a hospital bed, and a funeral, but over all, it's pretty mild. The language is very mild. This film really makes you think. I grew up on Mister Rogers's Neighborhood and the depiction of Mister Rogers was spot on. Tom Hanks did an incredible job acting in it and shared some good messages. Though Mister Rogers wasn't the main character in the film, the influence he had on the protagonist was inspiring. It made my family and I think about topics like family and forgiveness. Overall this film is pretty wholesome, but because of a few scary scenes, I'd recommend 11+.

Grown-up Mr. Rogers biopic effectively explores his impact

This biopic on Mr. Rogers serves as an effective exploration of Rogers' profound impact--accompanied by Tom Hanks' performance. Hanks adds to the effectiveness of A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood's exploration of Mr. Rogers, and his positive impact on countless individuals. Hanks effectively displays Mr. Rogers' attitude and philosophy with his amazing performance, which offers insight about Mr. Rogers' character. A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood also takes an unpredictable approach to its exploration of Mr. Rogers' character. The film doesn't only take into account Mr. Rogers' character, it also takes into account the individual (Lloyd Vogel) whom Mr. Rogers positively affected, along with the countless other individuals impacted by Mr. Rogers. It doesn't just display Mr. Rogers and his show/life, it also displays the people affected by him, which is a good concept used throughout the film. Still, nonetheless, this isn't a film for young kids. This is more for mature teens and adults, not because of iffy content (which is actually very mild in the film), but because of the mature storyline. Here is the content description of the film: Positive messages: 10/10. The film includes many positive messages within its themes. Themes include the importance of forgiveness, which is displayed throughout the film, along with the importance of kindness, empathy. Empathy is a theme discussed and glorified by Mr. Rogers, and this theme is another positive message in the film. Rogers provides words of encouragement throughout the film, including towards parents and children. Positive role models: 9/10. Mr. Rogers is an excellent role model whose character is kind and caring towards kids and adults. He never ignores people, and accepts everyone no matter their difficult circumstances. Lloyd starts out as a generally cynical and pessimistic person, but learns to forgive himself and others, including his father. Lloyd also develops a kind heart during his friendship with Rogers. Violence: 4/10. One tense scene involves a character punching his drunk father, leading to a brief but tense scuffle with the character getting punched as well (his nose is shown bruised). Some tense arguing occurs in the film. A character collapses in one scene but is alright; another character gets a heart attack, and struggles with his health (Spoilers! it is implied that he dies). Sex: 3/10. Shirtless men are shown in a couple scenes; nothing explicit is shown and it is shown in non-sexual ways. Some cleavage is shown in one scene; nothing explicit is shown. Kissing between a married couple in one scene. Profanity: 4/10. A couple mild swear words are used infrequently: "D*** it" (used once) "H***" (a couple times) and "Holy Cr*p". Swearing isn't frequent but occurs a couple times in the film. "Fat Freddy" is used to mention a term that was used to bully Mr. Rogers when he was young. Drinking/Drugs/Smoking: 4/10. Some alcoholic drinking by adults in several scenes, sometimes to excess. Adults are shown acting drunk in a couple scenes, it is implied and briefly mentioned. References to substance abuse in the film. Aside from the mature storyline, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is ultimately a good film for teens and grown-ups to watch due to its effective exploration of Mr. Rogers' profound impact on countless individuals. The film explores and displays his impact on individuals by showing the conflict one individual faces and showing Mr. Rogers' assistance in that conflict, which is a well-done concept used in the film. Tom Hanks succeeds in giving a realistic portrayal of Mr. Rogers' character by providing insight about his character, which results in his performance being an effectively insightful portrayal of Mr. Rogers, and Hanks certainly deserves the acclaim for his excellent performance. Nonetheless, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is an effective portrayal of a great man, leading me to give it 4 out of 5 stars, and recommending it for mature teens 13 and up.

Absolutely amazing

When a movie can make a 14 year old boy (me) cry, you know it’s a good movie. The reason I put 7+ is because it’s not too sad. Sadness will be felt by everybody in this movie, but it won’t be extreme sadness. The ending was surprisingly special. I had no idea how they were going to end it, but the way they wrapped it up made it sooooo worth it. 11/10

Beautiful and great message!

Watched this with my mum, i’m a 13 year old boy and i have been dying to watch this movie since it came out in cinemas, although i didn’t get a chance to see it. Anyway, the movie was brilliant. Absolutely beautiful and kind, wouldn’t recommend for young children as it can be a little intense at times and tragic but nothing inappropriate in it. Does use “hell” a bit but no other words. The story of Mr. Rogers is extraordinary, i cannot believe it is a true story! As i live in the U.K i have never heard of Mr Rogers but was still able to understand the movie. The way the movie flows is simply amazing and the acting is brilliant. Very sad and just beautiful, Tom Hanks played Mr Rogers very well and there was absolutely no disrespect towards Mr Rogers. The message is simply brilliant, would recommend this movie to anyone! Was lovely to watch and thoroughly enjoyed it.
