Detailed, entertaining and very well acted

Before I watched 'Saving Mr Banks', I had my thoughts ('How is this going to end happy?', 'Will Tom Hanks make two successful movies this year?')

Okay, it was a pretty good movie, the cast (Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Paul Giamitti, Colin Farrell, Jason Schwartzman, Bradley Whitford, Ruth Wilson, Annie Buckley) gave very good performances but especially Emma Thompson, how can she NOT ... read more

Review of Saving Mr. Banks

3 years, 10 months ago at Dec 25 1:22
Saving Mr. Banks is a feel-good movie. That's what it's marketed as, and that is what it is. Interestingly enough, it's during the less sentimental moments of the film when Saving Mr. Banks most consistently makes one feel good. The first half provides most of the comedy, and it's a really enjoyable time. The second half, however, contains more of the emotion, and while this is supposed to rep... read more

A tale about the pre production of 'Mary Poppins'

3 years, 7 months ago at Mar 4 11:15
This is not the first time I saw a movie which is about behind the making of a masterpiece work. Recent 'Hitchcock' described 'the man of mystery', Alfred Hitchcock's career best movie 'Psycho'. Johnny Depp's 'Finding Neverland' tells about behind the creation of a magical land and Peter Pan. So there are many other movies about theme like this. This movie is as well based on such kinda story whic... read more

Description: When Walt Disney's daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers' Mary Poppins (1964), he made them a promise - one that he didn't realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney's plans for the adaptation. For those two short weeks in 1961, Walt Disney pulls out all the stops. Armed with imaginative ... (more)

"1/5/17 Fascinating film about how Mary Poppins almost never got made due to the stubbornness of its creator, P.L. Travers. Cutting from her childhood to her time working on the script and being wooed by Walt Disney, Emma Thompson is terrific as Travers, while Tom Hanks brings a gentle calmness to his Disney. Funny, sweet and moving, it makes you look at the family classic in a different way."

"6.15Moving story of P.L. Travers (Emma Thomspon), the woman who wrote the children's book Mary Poppins and Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) whose 10 year courtship to make the book into a movie unfolds here with emotional tenderness. Emma Thompson is absolutely engaging as Travers, a woman besieged by love and guilt for his father--the basis of the character Mr. Banks."
