Mini Review - Saving Mr Banks

Saving Mr Banks (out Jan 9) explores the childhood of Mary Poppins author Pamela Travers and the reasons why she was so resultant to let Walt Disney adapt her books for the big screen. This is an interesting, likeable film with a few nice emotional elements. The scenes shared between Emma Thompson (as Travers) and Paul Giamatti (as her chauffeur) are the high points. Grade: A-.
