Dawn and I took in Saving Mr. Banks tonight and I was quite pleasantly surprised. The story was a touching one that left you looking for the positive in life. It was a lot if fun too and made me want to go back and watch Mary Poppins.
Emma Thompson was brilliant as usual and was perfectly cast for the role of P.? Travers, the author of Mary Poppins. Tom Hanks turned in a fine performance as he reincarnated Walt Disney. I also really loved Paul Giamatti in his role as P.L. Travers’ driver.
It is a very fun film that mixes the whimsy and fun of Disney with some great comic moments with a very touching back story.
RATING 9 out of 10
