“Saving Mr Banks”

Two-time Academy Award winner Emma Thompson and fellow double Oscar winner Tom Hanks star in this Disney movie, inspired by the extraordinary untold tale of how one of the most beloved stories of all time, Mary Poppins, was brought to the big screen.

The film is a poignant, sharply funny and moving recounting of Walt Disney's (Tom Hanks) quest to fulfil a promise to his daughters to make a film of their favourite book.

But Walt comes up against a writer, P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson), who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved creation get ruined by Hollywood. He tries everything, but she doesn't budge.

But as we know, in the end the film was made, but the story behind it is amazing.
