Morgan Neville's 2018 documentary "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" — one of the most acclaimed theatrical releases of that year — takes an intimate look at America's favorite neighbor, Fred Rogers, a soft-spoken minister, puppeteer, writer and producer. His beloved children's TV show "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood," in which the avuncular host spoke directly to his juvenile audience about life issues in a simple, direct fashion, was beamed into American homes each weekday for more than 30 years.
