Saving-Mr-Banks-Still-Photo-Colin-FarrellIn the tradition of 2004's "Finding Neverland" (the story behind the creation of Peter Pan) comes "Saving Mr Banks," the story behind the creation of Mary Poppins. The film tells two stories simultaneously: that of Mary Poppins' creator's childhood, and that of Walt Disney's battle to secure the film rights from her. The fact that the majority of the audience know how the story ends does not stop the film from being entertaining or engaging - even delightful. But, as with most Disney productions, the events shown in the movie have been cleaned up a bit, and some of the darker aspects were left out altogether.
