5.0 out of 5 stars Like Mary Poppins it's practically perfect in every way, 27 Mar 2014
This review is from: Saving Mr Banks [DVD] (DVD)
It's 1961 and Walt Disney is trying to get the rights to the Mary Poppins books from author P L Travers so he can make the movie Mary Poppins. At first Travers refuses to have anything to do with Disney but is gradually won over and the making of one of Disney's classic movies is born. Excellent performances, Emma Thompson is excellent as the frosty at least at first Travers while Tom Hanks does a great Walt Disney impression. Along with Captain Phillips this is Tom Hanks' best work in years and i am amazed that he got snubbed by the Academy for both films along with Emma Thompson. Perhaps the Academy thinks that 2 oscars each is enough for both actors? A witty script showing how Mary Poppins came to the screen and stick through the end credits which compare the cast from the film with the real life people involved in the making of Mary Poppins. Colin Farrell and Paul Giammatti also give very good supporting performances, this film is a delight to watch from start to finish.
