I can't think of one person who hasn't been touched in some way by the magical world of Mr. Rogers. I have many friends who cried while watching his documentary, and if you're anything like me, the trailer for the new film, A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, will give you chills.  Watch it below and let me know what you think!

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 kindness, love and forgiveness from America’s most beloved neighbor.
