    It's been quite challenging for me to sit down and jot down some of my thoughts following watching this film. I've had this tab open for the past five days because I want to write my thoughts, but my thoughts are very painful.

    Personally, I'm in the process of mourning. Like Lloyd Vogel, my parent is also terminally sick. I'm unable to communicate with them as well. Our trauma is different than the one Lloyd and Jerry share, but I can't help seeing me in their relationship. Also, my parent loves Mr. Rogers and showed me his show as a child - he, the show, what he was doing for children and education, even the city of Pittsburgh means a lot to my parent. I can't help but think about my own situation via this film.

    The last film I watched that was produced by Big Beach was The Farewell. Both films share this theme of losing (grand)parents. I saw The Farewell on the day my terminally ill uncle died. Unbeknownst to me, I saw A Beautiful Day... on that same uncle's birthday. These little synchronicities spice up my life. They give me some sort of balance, some sort of hope.

    This and The Farewell are my film companions as I prepare to lose my own parent. It's devasting and my heart is broken but I'm glad to have a film I wish I could share with them, that reminds me of a time when I felt safe, cared for, and loved unconditionally.

    It's ok, but it shouldn't be Mr. Rogers framing the story about some boring writer and his boring, movie-cliche reconciliation story. Every time Hanks is off-screen, I was wondering "why is the best part of the movie not on screen?" He's in maybe 45 minutes of the movie, to its detriment. Go watch last year's documentary instead, far more satisfying. 2 months ago

    A lovely and and compassionate picture, and like the TV show, addresses and tries to simplify to a sense of understanding some very challenging topics. A good watch for anyone tired of super heroes, dark thrillers, etc and in need for a soul cleanser 2 months ago
