Saving Mr. Banks (Drama 2013)

This one was OK. It told the story of how the movie of Mary Poppins came to be after Walt Disney woo'ed the author into signing over some rights. Don't know how accurate all of it was with regards to a "true story", but as a drama it wasn't too bad.

I remember Emma Thompson from other slower, British movies of the past, I don't recall her acting being as good as it was in this movie. She really took the part and ran with it. Tom Hanks was OK as he played a very different eccentric character of Disney, but Emma was still better.

The film was a bit boring though, as it slowly followed through the past and present of Emma's character. Definitely a story-based film.
Rating - C
