Our critics review “A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood,” based on a 1998 Esquire profile of Mr. Rogers, and it’s as much about the writer of the profile as it’s about Mr. Rogers; “Dark Waters,” about a corporate defense lawyer who switches sides to defend a small community poisoned by the corporation DuPont; “Frozen 2,” with Idina Menzel and Kristen Bell back as Anna and Elsa.
