IT only takes one person to inspire a world of kindness. Watch the brand new trailer of Columbia Pictures’ inspiring drama A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood starring Tom Hanks.
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 empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.
Directed by Marielle Heller, the film is written by Micah Fitzerman-Blue & Noah Harpster, inspired by the article “Can You Say. . . Hero?” by Tom Junod.
The cast is led by Tom Hanks (Sully, Bridge of Spies), Matthew Rhys (The Post), Susan Kelechi Watson (TV’s This Is Us) and Chris Cooper (Live by Night).
In Philippine cinemas soon, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood is distributed by Columbia Pictures, local office of Sony Pictures Releasing International. Use the hashtag #ABeautifulDayMovie
