Won’t You Be My Neighbor? (2018)
This is a moving documentary on the life of Fred Rogers and his PBS show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, which ran for decades for good reason. His gentle, truthful nature was key in teaching kids (and adults) the importance of love, respect, and acceptance. His song “It’s You I Like” resonates with lyrics such as “I hope that you’ll remember, even when you’re feeling blue… that it’s you I like, it’s you yourself, it’s you. It’s you I like.” And when you see him sing this and other songs as he looks directly at the camera, you’ll swear that he’s singing directly to you. Because he is.
