I liked the quirky optimism of this film. I know the name Mr Rogers but not his significance to the North American psyche. Tom Hanks brings to life the complexity of a man who has chosen a heroic path, despite obvious traumas. You see none of it in his story, it’s only hinted at by Mr Hanks’ demeanour, and reflected in Lloyd Vogel’s struggles. Mr Rogers walks a path few of us have the strength to follow. It is easier to fly off the handle, and go to our angry place, than find the strength to see the pain that causes such anger. Perhaps a sentiment that is needed now, more than any time since; insert your version of a traumatic historical event.
