A very amazing documentary film.
I grew up watching a wonderful PBS children’s show called “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood”, since I was a baby, and “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” is a really powerful and outstanding documentary film. Directed by Morgan Neville, it follows the life and times of Fred Rogers, an inspirational and compassionate gentleman who was a children’s television pioneer. Its themes include race relations, tolerance, kindness, and sincerity. Plus, it features interviews with Fred's family, consisting of his wife and his sons, and his friends, such as famed cellist Yo-Yo Ma and some of the stars of his popular TV show, including Francois Clemmons, David Newell (known for playing Mr. McFeely), and Joe Negri. The scene that features a clip of Rogers defending at a 1969 congressional hearing successfully is extremely memorable, as it emphasizes the importance of PBS. Even though it features at least one inappropriate scene, "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" is a film that should be seen by everybody, regardless if they have watched “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” or not. Very amazing.
