What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is a biopic based on the unlikely real-life friendship between Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks) and journalist Tom Junod (Matthew Rhys). In the movie, cynical writer Lloyd (a fictionalized version of Junod) is hesitant to believe that TV's Mister Rogers can truly be "the nicest man on earth," but as he and Rogers bond, Lloyd's life is slowly transformed, both personally and professionally. Hanks playing Rogers will be enough to appeal to many viewers, and kids familiar with Rogers' show and legacy may be curious to find out whether the man in the cardigan was truly that compassionate and generous (spoiler alert? he was!). There's a little bit of violence (two punches thrown during a fight at a wedding reception) and adult substance use, as well as a couple uses of words like "hell" and "crap" and some marital kissing/cuddling. The movie also deals with serious themes like death, forgiveness, and estranged family relationships. But overall it's quite positive and inspiring. Rogers teaches everyone around him about the power of kindness, love, and connection. He encourages children and adults alike to believe that they're special, worthy of love, and capable of forgiveness.
