"I blubbed quietly throughout the entire movie."
- Kevin Maher, The Times
"As with her superb recent adaptation of the literary-forgery memoir Can You Ever Forgive Me?, Heller has a flair for making this kind of material feel nothing like a routine biopic."
- Robbie Collin, Daily Telegraph
"With clear-eyed rigour, Heller, Hanks and Rhys put aside cheap sentiment and earn this film's authentic heartfelt emotion."
- Caryn James, BBC.com
"For those seeking comfort, kindness and a sense of cherishing in a turbulent world that seems to reward cruelty over caring, A Beautiful Day will be cinematic balm. Surrender to it and bring tissues."
- Jane Crowther, Total Film
"The story of Vogel and Rogers' connection is conventional, but [Director Marielle] Heller imbues it with delightful creative flourishes that set it apart from how a standard biopic might tackle this particular story."
- Kambole Campbell, The Independent
"While Hanks avoids attempting to awkwardly replicate Rogers' voice - although he does nail his cadence - he focuses on exuding the same bewitching, patient curiosity that Rogers had in the people he met."
- Benjamin Lee, The Guardian
Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about kindness, love and forgiveness from America’s most beloved neighbor.
