Rarely, if ever, can you find me at the movie theater. I generally have the patience to wait for the DVD at the public library. But, once in a while, there is a movie I absolutely cannot wait for, and this film about Mr. Rogers was one. I was a little skeptical about Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers (or really anyone for that matter) but Hanks did a great job. The beginning was a bit forced, but as the movie went on, I could start to hear Mr. Rogers in his voice and even see some of his mannerisms.
I made it a point not to read the plot of the movie, hoping it was not a birth to death kind of film, and it wasn’t! I don’t want to give the film away, so I won’t say much. But I thought the idea was great and made the film interesting. And the ending was perfect.
