“Saving Mr. Banks”

This film is a perfectly delightful experience. Wonderful casting and cinematography play a huge role in the film’s delivery and success. Tom Hanks portrays Walt Disney as well as is normally expected by a two-time Academy Award winning actor; and two-time Academy Award winning Emma Thompson does an excellent job portraying the complicated P.L. Travers. Certainly a great movie for the holiday season–one that highlights the 50th anniversary of a beloved classic. However, the movie makes the mistake of minimizing, as opposed to illuminating, the creative process; as well as containing some basic narrative and structural problems that hold the film back. Over all, the characters were quite static; but P.L. Travers is both dynamic and an excellent example of character development. Possible noms for Best Picture and Cinematography.
