SAVING MR. BANKS (2013)

This movie is about the making of the Disney filmĀ Mary Poppins. It focuses on P.L. Travers, author of the Mary Poppins books, on both her life as a child and her experience with working with Walt Disney. This movie is pretty fascinating. It is interesting to see the life of this women, portrayed by the wonderful Emma Thompson, and what may have inspired her to write her books. We also love seeing Walt Disney portrayed by Tom Hanks. I get excited every time he walks on the screen for the first time. It really is interesting how these two polar opposite personalities came together to make such a marvelous movie. This movie has inspired us to read the original Mary Poppins books as well as wanting to find out more about the life of her creator. If you are a fan of the books, the movie or Disney, we recommend this movie. It may get boring for young kids as it is a lot of talking, but we recommend checking it out for yourself.
