Mister Rogers summered in a modest house on a quiet corner of Nantucket Island. MTV producer Benjamin Wagner's mother rented the cottage next door. Mister Rogers really was his neighbor.

Another lovely documentary about my hero, Mr. R. - Suggested by Dawn

Last train home Gui tu lie che DVD Last train home Gui tu lie che
Every spring, China's cities are plunged into chaos as an astonishing 130 million migrant workers journey to their home villages for the New Year's holiday. This mass exodus is the largest human migration on the planet, an epic spectacle that reveals a country tragically caught between its rural past and industrial future. Chinese-Canadian filmmaker Lixin Fan travels with one couple who have embarked on this annual trek for almost two decades.

Informative, fascinating, and a bit heartbreaking exploration of families struggling for the next generation in the modern age.
