    Saving Mr. Banks is a fascinating look at the circuitous "collaborative" process Walt Disney, his creative team, and author P.L. Travers engaged in in bringing the character Mary Poppins to life on the big screen in the early 1960s. This touching, funny film is really two stories nicely tied up in one appealing package.

    The film, set in 1961, begins in London. Agent Diarmund Russell urges financially strapped author Pamela "P. L." Travers to travel to Los Angeles and meet with Walt Disney. Disney has been courting Travers for 20 years, seeking to acquire the film rights to her Mary Poppinsstories, on account of his daughters' request to make a film based on the character. Travers, however, has been extremely hesitant toward letting Disney bring her creation to the screen because he is known primarily as a producer of animated films, which Travers openly disdains. Having written nothing new and her book royalties dried up, she risks losing her house. Russell reminds her that Disney has agreed to two major stipulations—no animation and unprecedented script approval—before she finally agrees to go. Flashbacks depict Travers' difficult childhood in Allora, Queensland, Australia, which became the inspiration for much of Mary Poppins. Travers idolized her loving, imaginative father, Travers Robert Goff,...

She finally relented and allowed Disney to film the story but was s...
