definitely more for adults who have memories of watching it... I'm a 90's baby I've seen episodes when i was young so i was able to understand but anyone born after 2k wont see it as a value like the mid early 90's and earlier adults.
This movie is like a walk through the most precious, priceless God given gifts we have, time and love. INVALUABLE GIFTS
A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is no biopic but a very narrowly cast reimagining of one specific relationship late in the life of a noted person.
It’s as cosy as Mr Rogers’ trademark zip-up cardigan, but the sweetness of this film about the beloved US children’s television personality is tempered by the inventive eccentricity of its approach.
There’s no question that Hanks is perfect in the part, as the actor’s amiability and unquestionable sincerity make for an ideal match with the unique television personality. Marielle Heller's film itself, however, is a rather more modest achievement, sympathetic and yet entirely predictable in its dramatic trajectory of making a believer of an angry, cynical journalist.
