A very beautiful film that should have seen Emma and Tom being nominated for an Oscar.

I not surprised she hated it - Dick van Dyke's "cockernee" accent was horrendous!

I always found interesting to see a story about what is behind a story and Saving Mr. Banks is one of those cases. It tells the story of Walt Disney's battle with P.L. Travers the writer of the "Mary Poppins" books, to get the rights to transform Mary Poppins into film. I watched Mary Poppins just some days ago because of this film that caught my attention since the first time I saw the trailer. I always thought that I wouldn't like Mary Poppins but I really enjoyed and now after watching Saving Mr. Banks I think I like it even more because it's really touching to see that what's behind that joyful and magical story is actually something very emotional and sad. The lead performances as the supporting ones are all great! Emma Thompson gives an outstanding interpretation of Mrs. Travers that for more stubborn and annoying that she could be it's impossible not to like her. Tom Hanks as Walt Disney did a good job too. I didn't like very much Colin Farrell before but the last performances that I saw from him were very good and in this film he really surprised me. He delivered an amazing truly emotional performance. Overall, Saving Mr. Banks is a beautiful film, very touching and emotional with some hilarious moments. I loved it. Note: This has nothing to do with the film, it's just an intriguing question... Why adults take 5/6/7 year old children to see a film about how Mary Poppins was made into film? Maybe because they see the word Disney and they think their children will enjoy the film who has nothing to do with animation (somehow has but not in a way that they possibly think) and the result is children don't like the film and they are bothering everyone around talking loud all the time making questions about what they don't understand. Anyway, I made the effort of turned off myself from everything around me and enjoy this lovely film.

It's been quite some time since I have been so moved by a film and this has certainly swelled my heart into a big Mickey Mouse shaped balloon. I find it hard to put into words exactly how I feel, but I know I am full of joy, sorrow and wonder. Tom Hanks was perfectly cast and he brings his own magic to Walt's twinkling presence. Thompson's performance was nothing short of perfect in every single way. She moved me to tears, she filled me with laughter and she had me at attention the entire film. I love this film and will return for the emotional ride again and again.

[4.6/10] I like to imagine that the pitch for *Saving Mr. Banks* was a cynical, mercenary attempt to finally win Walt Disney Studios an Academy Award for Best Picture. “Let’s cram as many former Oscar nominees as we can into this thing,” I picture one cigar-chomping, mustachioed movie producer More

Utterly brilliant!

I haven't watched 'Mary Poppins' itself in many, many years but still have memories of it as a kid. That meant I had the desired knowledge of the key parts about that film, which I'd say is probably wise to watch before this - though not a requirement, at least More

Nicely done movie with great performances from Thompson and Hanks. Also Farrell, which a role made perfectly for him.

The story is well threaded, letting us walk through Travers childhood and the birth of the main characters in Mary Poppins' books.
