Saving Mr. Banks by John Lee Hancock, 2013 (PG-13)

Nominated for the Oscars 2014 for the following category: Music Original Score

When Walt Disney sets his sights on obtaining the rights to the children's classic "Mary Poppins," he reaches out to the book's author, P.L. Travers, only to find that she proves a tough nut to crack.

As a Disney's production, this fits perfectly, with caricature characters and a happy ending story. The movie abuses of violins and clichés to make you cry... The story although is an interesting one, since it is part of the history of the making of "Mary Poppins", and definitely was well documented since its author, Travers, required that every meeting would be recorded. It shows the fascinating behind the scene, how the songs and the movie evolved from an initial draft, who and how the character were to become... Definitely a story that had to be told.

with Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Cloud Atlas, Larry Crowne, Captain Phillips), Emma Thompson (Beautiful Creatures, Brave, Men in Black 3, An Education, Love Actually), Colin Farrell (Dead Man Down, In Bruges, Total Recall), Paul Giamatti (Cosmopolis, Duplicity, Barney's Version, Deconstructing Harry), Jason Schwartzman (Simone), B.J. Novak, Bradley Whitford, Ruth Wilson (Anna Karenina), Annie Buckley, Melanie Paxson, Rachel Griffiths, Kathy Baker (Take Shelter)
From the director of The Blind Side
