Starring: Emma Thompson, Tom Hanks

Saving Mr Banks is inspired by actual events and tells of the incredible persistence and heartache experienced by Walt Disney and his staff in attempting to persuade authoress P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) to sign over the rights to her world famous novel Mary Poppins.

When Walt Disney promised his daughters he would bring Mary Poppins to life on the silver screen, he didn't realize it would become a 20 year quest. In 1961 Travers' books stopped selling and she became financially inept so decided to meet Disney. She immediately dismissed the idea that Mary Poppins should be a musical, was adamant that Dick Van Dyke would not be suitable and said no to the animation process.

Travers' childhood in Australia is explored and details the close bond she shared with her father who aroused her incredible imagination. The family tragedy which inspired the character of Mary Poppins and was the catalyst to her refusal to co-operate with Disney is also recounted.

This is an enchanting and insightful film which will delight audiences of all ages. Mary Poppins enthusiasts will be enthralled as the "behind the scenes" narrative unfolds revealing each step as the film finally made it to the big screen.

Saving Mr Banks has fine production values and the moving musical score, brilliant performances from Thompson and Hanks and glorious excerpts from the actual film accumulate delivering a magnificent film which must be experienced by all movie goers.
