    A wonderful reminder of what matters most in life. Fred Rodgers poured loving kindness upon everyone he encountered--especially the most vulnerable among us--inviting us to embrace our own vulnerable, childlike parts.

    What a great story, about a kind and wonderful man. My daughter grew up with him and I am soooooo glad she did. A role model for the ages.....

    Everyone should see this movie... I am a late 60's kid and have memories of Mr. Rogers Neighborhood... They did such a great job in showing the real Mr. Rogers who was exactly like you saw on the show according to his close family and friends. He contributed so much to children and the whole world with his simple message of You are special just the way you are mantra.

    Our country... actually the world... would be a better place if everyone (especially our political leaders) if we all watched (and learned from) Mr. Rogers! As his series of programs, which many of us encouraged our children to watch (and watched with them), this documentary is lovely, kind, sweet, significant, and worth watching! It should be available to ALL, at ALL times... in the permanent library for ALL! As a mother, grandmother, former teacher, reading consultant, multi-year school board member, PTA leader, public-school activist, and caring community member/leader, as well as the former manager of the instructional television department of a PBS affiliate, I wear an old Mr. Rogers tee shirt with pride. I urge everyone to see, and learn from, this movie! It is a gem!

    I liked it all. Some was so moving that I cried. I learned so much about Mr. Rogers that I didn't know though my children watched him a lot. He was so passionate about what should be on tv and about children needing love. Stay until the very end, even the credits.
