Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson bring to life the untold true story about the origins of one of the most treasured Disney classics of all time. John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) directs this acclaimed film, which reveals the surprising backstory behind the making of Mary Poppins. Determined to fulfill a promise to his daughters, Walt Disney (Hanks) tries for twenty years to obtain the rights to author P.L. Travers' (Thompson) beloved book. Armed with his iconic creative vision, Walt pulls out all the stops, but the uncompromising Travers won't budge. Only when he reaches into his own complicated childhood does Walt discover the truth about the ghosts that haunt Travers, and together, the set Mary Poppins free.

"Saving Mr. Banks" - A tribute worth a watch! (Ians Movie Review)

7 February 2014 12:03 AM, PST | RealBollywood.com | See recent RealBollywood news »

Film: "Saving Mr. Banks"; Cast: Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Paul Giamatti, Jason Schwartzman, Colin Farrell, Bradley Whitford, Ruth Wilson, B.J. Novak, Rachel Griffiths, Dendrie Taylor, Kathy Baker, Victoria Summer, Ronan Vibert, Annie Buckley and Melanie Paxson; Director: John Hancock; Rating: ****1/2

An engaging, well-crafted and mounted drama, "Saving Mr. Banks" is the Golden Jubilee tribute to Walt Disney's 1964 family musical hit, "Mary Poppins".

The film is a very intimate representation that unravels the source, adaptation and making of the legendary classic, "Mary Poppins". Touted to be a "real story" of Walter Disney's travails in the making of the film, it also encapsulates the life of the author, P.L. Travers. »
