    A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood

    ★★★★★

    Please won't you be my neighbor...
    When those first notes begin, my eyes misted and the nostalgia of learning big life lessons with Mr.Rogers came flooding back.

    If you're not familiar with his show, I recommend watching a few episodes, many of which are available at fredrogers.org. It's a wonderful balm after a hard day in the grown-up world, and you may learn a thing or two about kindness, forgiveness, and friendship.

    A bold new voice in documentary (if you haven't done so yet, do seek out her other films), Kitty Green's Casting JonBenet delves into the mystery and myth of the famous murder case through interviews with actors and non-actors vying for a role in her film.
    A much stronger documentary than Kate Plays Christine, which explored a similar method of storytelling through actor prep, Green's eye for composition and performance, paired with rich subject matter makes for a moving and affecting piece of cinema.

    It's a shame I didn't get to see this on the big screen.

    ★★★★

    I'm thankful that Netflix is providing a platform for these stories to be told.
    Like The Hunting Ground, you will finish this doco heartbroken and angry, and hopefully, looking for ways to affect change.
