Yesterday I was given a real treasure. I finally felt better after battling a virus January 1-10th. My friend Pat and I saw the movie “Saving Mr. Banks”, and I must give my five-star recommendation!
This movie explores the story of how Mr. Walt Disney, after 20 years of discussions with Mrs. P.L. Travers (author of the Mary Poppins books), finally talks her into letting her Mary Poppins character come alive in a movie, a movie that became a favorite of children and adults alike. “Saving Mr. Banks” was a very warm and touching movie, as it explained P.L.Travers’ life as a little girl and the events that shaped her psyche and her ability to write. The audience also got to know a little more about Walt Disney — his loving and compassionate nature that never gave up on people.
In my humble opinion, a new year of quality, high value movies has begun with this wonderful movie. Please go see it! :)
