Paul Willistein of the Lehigh Valley Press reviews this biographical documentary film of Fred Rogers, directed by Morgan Neville
“Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” is a fascinating glimpse into the genesis and making of “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood,” the sociological influences of the television show, and the personality of Fred Rogers, the life-long Republican and Presbyterian minister who turned a television show into a television ministry. The documentary film is directed by Morgan Neville, who received a documentary feature Oscar for the superb “20 Feet From Stardom” (2014).
