Marielle Heller (“Can You Ever Forgive Me?”) directs the film that’s loosely based on a 1998 Esquire article and follows a jaded magazine writer (Matthew Rhys) who is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers (Hanks) but is doubtful of Rogers’ optimism.

Over time, the two form a friendship and he overcomes his scepticism, learning about empathy, kindness and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor. Chris Cooper also stars in the film which was penned by Micah Fitzerman-Blue and Noah Harpster.

The film was shot in the original studio in Philadelphia where “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” was filmed. The film opens in cinemas November 22nd.
