A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood: Cineworld Unlimited screening reactions

Tom Hanks has been Golden Globe nominated for his moving performance as Fred Rogers in A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood. And Cineworld Unlimited members got to see it in advance earlier this week.

Rogers was revered as America's moral conscience because of his long-running TV show Mister Rogers' Neighborhood. The programme ran for over 40 years, encouraging creativity and compassion in its young viewers.

And director Marielle Heller's new drama follows suit, exploring how Rogers is profiled by journalist Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys), whose puff piece editorial soon becomes a revealing piece of self-examination. Via his interactions with Rogers, Vogel learns to come to terms with himself, and his relationship with his father.

So what did Unlimited members make of it? Fran Orford says the movie has a powerful message.

Anjum Khan agrees, praising the movie's sense of decency.

Kyle Snape lauds the movie for embodying Rogers' spirit.

Sue Ginda says it's another winning performance from Hanks.

JuliaLovesRain89 says the movie defines the term 'heartwarming'.

Nevertheless, some viewers say the film's message gets lost in translation – after all, we in the UK didn't grow up with Rogers on the TV.
