I am a kid of the 1970’s and Mr Rogers I’ve never heard off until now. I don’t think his show was ever broadcast in this country. Nonetheless that doesn’t mean this film won’t be any less entertaining. This trailer has a lot of emotion and connecting with your heart. Can You Ever Forgive Me? director Marielle Heller is directing this one. She’s giving this one an empathetic, humanistic touch, embracing the warmth and kindness of it’s lead character.
Are we looking at another potential Oscar nomination? With Tom Hanks in the lead role, anything is possible.
