Saving Mr. Banks

Emma Thompson. Tom Hanks. That alone makes it worth watching. The story is somewhat true as it is based on a true story and underpinned by hours of recorded conversations. Obviously, it has a predictable outcome. But it is really fun watching havoc caused by PL Travers. Disney was portrayed, for the most part, as kindly fellow who had the best interests of his customers in mind. In reality, he was one of those geniuses that it is difficult to work for. That bit of whitewash took some of the grittiness out of the story.

On the strength of the acting, the movie gets a three.
