Saving Mr. Banks

Tonight I was surfing through channels. You'd think when there are over 200 channels there would be things on besides, Friends, Big Bang Theory and Everybody Loves Raymond.

Thankfully as I hit the higher stations I found Saving Mr. Banks. I wanted to see this movie when it came out, but life wouldn't allow it.

I'm glad I sat down for those two hours.

Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks were brilliant. My heart broke for Mrs. Travers as the story progressed. As you saw snapshots of her young life, it was hard not to get emotional.

For those that aren't familiar with the premise, this is the story of how Mary Poppins came to the big screen.

I highly recommend this movie, and I'm not a fan of biopics etc. It definitely made me want to read the Mary Poppins books and learn more about their author.

Anyone else see this movie?
