Synopsis by Phil Griffin
Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys) is tasked with creating a profile of Fred Rogers (Tom Hanks), the creator and star of the successful children’s program Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. He dutifully goes to the studio where his subject is filming his show, and soon enough, he is sitting down with him, asking him probing questions. However, Fred seems to have a different plan in mind. The interviewee suddenly becomes the interviewer, and he starts to help the writer sent for him in unexpected ways. The film, which is based on the 1988 Esquire cover story by Tom Junod, is directed by Marielle Heller.
