Saving Mr. Banks (2013) Rated PG-13

Saving mr. BanksAuthor P. L. Travers travels to Los Angeles for two weeks to contemplate whether or not to sale her rights to Mary Poppins to Walt Disney. Starring Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks, Annie Rose Buckley, Colin Farrell, Ruth Wilson, Paul Giamatti, Bradley Whitford, B.J. Novak, Jason Schwartzman

This has to be one of the best films of the season. The filmmakers do a wonderful job at folding in Travers childhood stories into the telling of her two weeks spend with Disney. Whether or not everything is truthful is another story. Since we don’t know much about her childhood. I do think they were able to capture Mrs. Travers personality perfectly. I loved that they used the real sound recordings of the sessions with Travers and the Production team. The actor’s, of course, were all on top of their game but I must say Colin Farrell is the most underrated actor in the business. How he transforms himself into character always amazes me. This is one film you shouldn’t miss this season, especially if you love Mary Poppins.
