I saw this as yet another Cineworld Unlimited preview.
It’s slow. It’s cautious. It’s really good.
How come the USA got Fred Rogers and the UK got Jimmy Saville and Rolf Harris?
The premise of an investigational journalist doing an interview with USA nice guy Mr Rogers is excellent. That it is based on a true story is even better.
This has to be one of the best films I’ve seen Tom Hanks in since Big. He is amazing as the calm and delightful Mr Rogers.
The misanthropic nature of the journalist fits the zeitgeist and works very well.
This is a delightful, slow, film that is well worth seeing.
