“Mister Rogers wasn’t just a nice guy. This new documentary proves he was a quiet radical…Won’t You Be My Neighbor? leaves viewers wrestling with our own collective conscience in the here-and-now, contemplating our own commitment to the unconditional love and acceptance that Rogers championed so passionately…an empathic, enlightened call to arms.” – The Washington Post

“As he greeted us, he shed his suit jacket for a cardigan and traded his loafers for sneakers. But his tie stayed knotted, and his warmth carried an aura of gentle formality. He was not shy about being a role model or a benevolent authority figure. On the contrary, he took the responsibilities of adulthood seriously. He might have been the last of his kind.” – The New York Times

“Won’t You Be My Neighbor? performs the invaluable service of letting us witness the man in action with those who meant the most to him: children. In these troubled times, it’s a good feeling to see a funny, touching and vital doc that is both timely and timeless.” – Rolling Stone
