Tom Hanks new film promotes power of prayer

Another mainstream film is positively showing the ideas of faith, prayer, and personal relationships with God. The new Misters Rogers movie portrays Mister Rogers' praying.

"Do you know what that means, to forgive?" Hanks, who portrays Rogers in the film, can be seen asking in the latest trailer. "It's a decision we make to release a person from the feelings of anger we have toward them."

The film is based on an article written by journalist Tom Junod, who formed a strong friendship with Rogers while profiling him. The movie reportedly tells the story about how their friendship developed over the years after meeting for the first time.

'A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood' will be released on 22 November 2019 in the US and on 6 December 2019 in the UK.

Rogers was the subject of a 2018 documentary titled 'Won't You Be My Neighbor', which documented his life and work.
