It’s a more beautiful ‘Neighborhood’ when Mister Rogers is in it

Tom Hanks becomes Mister Rogers in “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” a movie that’s pretty magical whenever he’s on the screen.

Tom Hanks becomes Mister Rogers in “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” a movie that’s pretty magical whenever he’s on the screen, and fairly mundane when he isn’t.

Sony is shrewdly marketing the movie as the film we need right now, a warm blanket of kindness. That feels true, but it’s hard not to wish that the story was as consistently good as the man — and performance — at its center.

Mr. Rogers taught us to accept people as they are. Sitting back, slipping into a comfortable sweater and shoes and enjoying “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” is no different.

“A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood” premieres Nov. 22 in the US. It’s rated PG.
