Won't you be my neighbor
« on: 17 Jun 2018, 02:04 am »
I am 53, I watched Mr. Rogers plus electric company, and sesame street in my middle childhood.  He was a safe haven for me.

This documentary is perfect for our time and every time.  I dragged my 13 and 15 yr olds to this movie.  My 15 yr son admitted to tearing up a couple of times.  The rest of the audience in the theater were my age or above.

Just go and see it.  I promise you that it will move you and make you realize that America is great because of people like Mr. Rogers.  But, like his son stated in the movie, it was like I had Jesus Christ as a father.  He had his foibles and his idiosyncrasies that made him human, but no one can logically deprecate his actions on television.

Did Eddie Murphy play the lead?

If you're not in tears by the end, you're not human.
