Saving Mr. Banks (2013)

Well, that wasn't what I expected. I was expecting a bit of a biog and what I got was a story of forgiveness via the proxy of Walt Disney. Yes the film was manipulative but which films aren't. The flashback sequences worked very well. Tom Hanks was perfect as Disney but Emma Thompson shone as P.L Travers.

Sad, joyfully and light hearted in the right places. Put it this way; my wife has only one film that she has enjoyed watching more than once (Withnail & I) but even she said she'd like to see this again!
