Movies that Matter is the podcast going beyond basic film criticism to boldly explore a social issue affecting people's lives.

Dec 5, 2019

Stacy and Nicole discuss A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, and how overall it left us both cold, the movie's strange choice in telling the story of Lloyd instead of Mr. Rogers, and how the movie fails in every way to understand the dynamic of children estranged from a parent. We vastly prefer the documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor. We get personal on the topic of estrangement and forgiveness. For further reading, issendai has research on estranged parent forums. Also check out the article that kicked off the movie.

Stacy recommends the Twitter account @mrrogersquotes. Nicole recommends Blindspotting.
