Saving Mr Banks: Nutshell Review
Admittedly, it was under mild protest with more than a spoonful of sugar needed to make me watch this. The subject matter just didn’t grab me – but it turns out my BIG bag of chocolates wasn’t even half finished because I found myself engrossed in a Disney story! The background to Mary Poppins arriving on the big screen is intriguingly told (if heavily modified) – and both Hanks and Thompson are terrific sparring partners in a movie that explores multiple themes and real life issues. As if by magic, this has become one of the better movies I have seen for some time – fitting alongside the likes of Good Will Hunting and The Dead Poets Society in terms of ‘feel’.
