Saving Mr. Banks(2013)

This is a story that Disney should never have touched considering its relationship with P.L. Travers. It seems a bit disrespectful to me. Having said that the movie itself is not bad. Emma Thompson in particular acted out her role to perfection and most of the other cast was good as well. On the other hand, Tom Hanks was never the right choice for Walt Disney and it shows. The movie is definitely not without its disappointments, but it was pretty emotional even if the story is sugarcoated. I also enjoyed the film's setting, which gives us a feel of what Disney things were like in the 1960's. (First and only viewing - 12/19/2013 in theaters)
