This week we’ll get together to see two-time academy award winners Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson star in SAVING MR. BANKS, the story behind the making of the Disney classic, Mary Poppins! Rotten Tomatoes, which has the film currently rated at an excellent 81% says, “Saving Mr. Banks pays tribute to the Disney legacy with excellent performances and sweet, high-spirited charm.” Here’s a description, trailer and plan for the show:
DESCRIPTION: Author P. L. Travers reflects on her difficult childhood while meeting with filmmaker Walt Disney during production for the adaptation of her novel, Mary Poppins. The film is inspired by the extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disney's classic "Mary Poppins" made it to the screen, including a very curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer and a promise Walt Disney made to his daughters to bring their favorite book to the big screen! Saving Mr. Banks stars Tom Hanks as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as writer P.L. Travers. Here are some early reviews and articles:
