Very enjoyable movie with solid acting and a very good story---could have trimmed 15-20 minutes but still worth a view--- B+

This is a brilliantly acted film that surprised and moved me in unexpected ways. It demonstrates how early events in mold us and the power of healing.

Let me start by saying I'm very familiar with \"Mary Poppins\" the movie, but haven't read any of the books. After seeing this movie and doing a little research on PL Travers, it makes me wonder how much of the story is hers, and how much is Walt's brilliance at telling a story. Definitely worth see

This was a good movie but it would have been much better if it didn't go out of its way to show us what a Jerk the lady that wrote Mary Poppins was. We didn't have to know in that much of detail!

Excellence in story telling. Emma Thompson is magnificent. Could have made Hanks look older but otherwise near perfect.

There’s charm and delight here, to be sure, but it is occasionally obscured by attempts to make it somehow darker, deeper, and more dramatic. Full Review

The whole thing goes down with a few bucketloads of sugar. What keeps it from becoming sticky schmaltz is Thompson, who plays Travers with wit and warmth, adding a spoonful of spoilt child to help the battleaxe go down. Full Review

Sentiment is at its heart. The legions who grew up on Disney's Mary Poppins will find it delightfully satisfying to hear snippets of its enormously catchy songs and watch its captivating creative journey. Full Review

It’s Thompson as the heroically unbiddable Travers who makes the most of it; her bravura performance effectively dominates the film. Full Review

Saving Mr. Banks does end in tears, but they're Disney tears, as befits a movie about Disney made by Disney. Which doesn't mean you shouldn't see this beguiling piece of pop storytelling, built on half-truths whipped into shape for a storybook ending that never was. Full Review
