saving mr banks

Rated PG-13

This movie is inspired by the extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disney’s classic “Mary Poppins” made it to the screen.

When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins,” he made them a promise-one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, she reluctantly agrees to go to LA to hear Walt Disney’s plans for the adaptation. He tries everything to impress her but she is unmoved. When he reaches into his own childhood, Walt discovers the truth about the ghosts that haunt her, and together they ultimately make one of the most endearing films in cinematic history.

Starring: Emma Thompson , Tom Hanks , Colin Farrell , Bradley Whitford , Paul Giamatti
