Saving Mr. Banks (20-Oct-2013)

Director: John Lee Hancock

Writers: Kelly Marcel; Sue Smith

Keywords: Comedy, Drama

Biographical drama tells the true-life story of film mogul Walt Disney's attempts to bring the story of Mary Poppins to the silver screen.

ABSTRACT
Blessed with control of a commercially-successful film studio and all the accolades that naturally come with it, entertainment icon Walt Disney found himself strapped in for the showdown of his career when a wish from his daughters to produce a film adaptation of children's tale Mary Poppins placed him across the bargaining table from author P.L. Travers. Stubborn, unwilling to compromise, and seemingly set in her ways, Travers' refusal to budge despite Disney's increasingly-glitzy attempts to break her are dramatized in Saving Mr. Banks, a tale of deal-making in the face of highly personal motives and emotions.
