Tom Hanks On 'Choosing An Authentic Life' At World Premiere Of Mr. Rogers Biopic


Morning Edition host George Prentice reports on the multiple world premieres from the 2019 edition of the Toronto International Film Festival, including the much-anticipated "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" starring Tom Hanks, and "Just Mercy," starring Michael B. Jordan. The two films are among the more than 300 movies being showcased at this year's TIFF, which is expected to attract nearly 500,000 attendees.

“[Mr. Rogers] just wanted to make little kids, little human beings, feel safe, even if they didn’t have all the answers or couldn’t understand. I think what I learned is that you can somehow choose an authentic life.”
