Saving Mr. Banks

What I liked:

  • It is an interesting behind the scenes look of how the film, Mary Poppins, came into existence.
  • Emma Thompson is always wonderful.
  • Tom Hanks made for a good Walt Disney.
  • It has a talented supporting cast: Colin Farrell, Ruth Wilson, Paul Giamatti, Bradley Whitford, B.J. Novak, Jason Schwartzman, Kathy Baker, and Rachel Griffiths.
  • Stay through the credits for a special treat.

What I didn't like:
  • The trailer is deceiving.  The movie is more of a drama than a lighthearted comedy.  It's also not about Mary Poppins.  The title is right, it is more about Mr. Banks.
  • Somewhat spoilish: I wish she didn't have such daddy issues.  

Grade: B+
