Saving Mr. Banks

Mary Poppins becomes alive through the eyes of a little girl trying to tell her story.

Disney’s classic film “Mary Poppins” made for children and adults alike took 20 years in the making, not the actual movie, but convincing its author P.L. Travers to let Disney develop her story. As Travers reminisces about her childhood a magical nanny appears and rescues the family when her father’s health declines. Doesn’t this sound familiar? In this movie, you see a major film production come to life and a glimpse into the author’s vivid memory of her father.
