Won’t You Be My Neighbor? is a 2018 American documentary Movie. It had a easy set and minimal production values. As a host, it employed an ordained Presbyterian minister whose flashiest be below par was shifting into a cardigan sweater. A likely candidate for legendary television completion Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was not.
Yet for on zenith of 30 years, Fred Rogers’ Pittsburgh-based public television half-hour was a little-screen powerhouse, entrancing generations of wee fans and even influencing public policy. Not bad for a man who believed high regard is at the root of all … admire or the lack of it.
Although Rogers died in 2003 at age 74, the excellent “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” is the first documentary concerning speaking him, and Morgan Neville is the ideal filmmaker to do the job.
A documentary veteran who won the Oscar for the entrancing Twenty Feet From Stardom, Neville is an experienced professional who knows what questions to ask and, full of beans in imitation of editors Jeff Malmberg and Aaron Wickenden, how to collect the answers.
