I watched "Mary Poppins" shortly before to enjoy this movie the most. I was so glad to do that. Emma Thompson is wonderful.

Giood movie, Tom Hanks and Emma Thomspson are wonderful in this movie. Be forewarned that even though P. Travers cries at the Mary Poppins film, she absolutely hated the movie, and would not see it for 20 years.

I really looked forward to seeing this movie and was seriously disappointed! I expected Disney + Mary Poppins = light! fun! upbeat. Instead I witnessed the horrors of P. L. Travers' childhood that was the inspiration for her escapist fictional tale. My only thought since returning the DVD to the library has been, "I hope this doesn't taint Mary Poppins the next time I watch it."

Good acting, cinematography, and writing, but it is slow, the plot is somewhat weak, and the flashbacks to the main characters past are nauseating and excruciatingly dull.

Only reason to watch is Emma Thompson. ------ The Disney Studio portrays itself as crass, simplistic and worthy of being avoided by PL Travers for 20 years. For some unclear reason she caves and it is implied that she will like the movie. If it's in fact true that she didn't like the movie then, with this one, she's been screwed twice by them. ----- I think Disney portrays itself as crass and cheap because they don't know who they are or what taste is. The stuff sells, and in America, that's proof it's both 'right' and 'real'. ----- Jason Schwartzman can't act yet keeps working. Nepotism? ------- I cried at the end and all during.

I found the movie very moving. Would probably watch it a second time. I really liked Emma Thompson's portrayal of P.L.Travers and Hanks was great as Disney.

it was a great movie.when i watched it i did not even know it was based on a book

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

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.
