Saving Mr Banks A Magical Delight

Saving Mr Banks


Delightful and moving best describe Disney’s newest offering: Saving Mr. Banks. If you never imagined there was more to learn about the making of Mary Poppins, you were mistaken. This film takes us on a journey as Walt Disney and his staff deal with P.L.Traverse, the author of Mary Poppins, as she resists all efforts to make the movie that won the heart of audiences around the world.

The movie follows two story paths: 1961 at Disney Studios hammering out the script and music, and the early 1900s childhood of P.L.Travers. Collin Firth plays a frustrated and imaginative Traverse Goff, the author’s father. Tom Hanks portrays a believable Disney and Emma Thompson as P.L. Traverse plays a character you want to hate but learn to love as the two stories converge.

You may find yourself (as I overheard a few movie goers exiting the theater) humming Let’s Go Fly A Kite and remarking they want to go home and watch Mary Poppins again.

Whether you saw Mary Poppins as a child or on DVD for the first time, this backstory production will satisfy any generation. Bring tissues because you’ll experience tears of joy and sorrow as the stories unfold.

Saving Mr. Banks is a well-crafted story capturing the magic of Mary Poppins on a deeper, emotional level. Great family entertainment.
