Thought it unusual for a movie to be made on the back story of another movie, Marry Poppins but it absolutely worked. Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson did a masterful job portraying Disney and P L Travers. In real life I read P L Travers disliked the movie through and through. But since this is a Disney movie Travers was portrayed as even enjoying a song or two.

Loved it! Now I must watch Mary Poppins again.

Sometimes I forgot it was actually Tom Hanks and not Walt Disney, Tom did such a great job portraying Disney. It's sort of a message movie, but not heavy

I enjoyed this movie very much. I enjoyed the back story of Travers' childhood and the interactions between her and Disney and staff. Great movie.

Don't ever think of watching this movie without watching Mary Poppins first.
You will enjoy it more.

I enjoyed watching the battle of the will war between Disney and author PL Travers - a very complicated woman who holds more than a few cards unseen. I enjoyed the story for the most part - this is a film where it is best to let go and be led (rather than putting yourself in the directors seat). Very entertaining - both funny and sad.

Is this movie all about the preservation of Mr Banks since he seems to represent the father?

I enjoyed this and actually sobbed at the end - however.... I still haven't a clue how the book of Mary Poppins was supposed to show that Mary Poppins came to save the father. Yes, that seems to have been the intent of the visit by the sister in the movie, but I don't see how it translated to that in the book, in which the father hardly appears at all. In the movie of Mary Poppins, yes. In the text of the book - nope. I totally understood P L Travers' objections to the "Disneyfication" of her story - I object to Disney messing with stories I've loved, too. I didn't feel the movie adequately portrayed the relationship between Disney and Travers. For the real story, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saving_Mr_Banks and scroll down to "History".

This movie clearly expresses how important a father is to his daughter and the impact their relationship has on her whole life.

I love this movie, not because the Disney movie, but the meaning story.
I lose my father (Alcohol & depression) while my sickness of stroke.
The author's father reminded me my father.

Travers Goff (voiceover): "...Winds in the east... mist coming in... like something is brewing... about to begin... Can't put me finger... on what lies in store... but I feel what's to happen... all happened before..."

Much more from imdb-----Walt Disney: "No whimsy or sentiment!" says the woman who sends a flying nanny with a talking umbrella to save the children.
------
P.L. Travers: You think Mary Poppins is saving the children, Mr. Disney?
-------
[Walt and the other filmmakers are stunned silent]
--------
P.L. Travers: Oh, dear!
--------

From imbd: Walt Disney: George Banks and all he stands for will be saved. Maybe not in life, but in imagination. Because that's what we storytellers do. We restore order with imagination. We instill hope again and again and again.
