Evie Totty: “It ruled.”

This film wasn't actually about Fred Rogers but the effect he had on a journalist sent to interview him. But it made me love Mr. Rogers even more (if that's even possible).

It is based on a story from an article in Esquire from 1998 called Can you say... Hero?

I have not had a chance to read it yet but the film moved me to tears. Fred Rogers is a modern-day saint if you ask me.

Scott Hardie: I grew up watching Fred Rogers and have a high opinion of how he viewed the world and conducted himself. He's an outstanding role model, for adults as well as kids. That said, I heard early on that this film was not really going to be about him, and months of advance buzz about "the Mister Rogers movie" made me fear that audiences were going to feel duped and turn on this movie. I'm glad to get the impression from things I've read online that audiences mostly liked it. − December 31, 2019 • more by Scott
