A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood
Jul 30, 2022 • Ken Wetmore
This week we conclude our summer blockbuster series with "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood." Based on a true story, Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys) is an investigative journalist who receives an assignment to profile Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks), aka Mr. Rogers. He approaches the interview with skepticism, as he finds it hard to believe that anyone can have such a good nature. But Roger's empathy, kindness, and decency soon chips away at Vogel's jaded outlook on life, forcing the reporter to reconcile with his own painful past.
