"Saving Mr. Banks"

Starring Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson and Colin Farrell, Rated PG-13; 125 minutes; 2013

It’s Classics Week and Saving Mr. Banks shows the difficulties Walt Disney had bringing the classic, Mary Poppins to the big screen! Walt Disney wasn’t a man to forget a promise.  When he promised his daughters that he would make a movie of their favorite books, P.L. Travers’ “Mary Poppins”, he didn't realize it would take 20 years to keep that promise. While trying to obtain the rights, Disney comes up against a difficult and obsessive author who has no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny out of her control. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney's plans. Walt Disney launches a plan to persuade P.L. Travers, to trust him with her classic story, but the difficult author has other plans and Disney has to search deep into his own childhood to understand.
