The film tells of the making of the classic movie "Mary Poppins." And according to the film that movie almost never happen. The year is 1961 and Walt disney is preparing to make the film with help of the author PL Travers played brilliantly by Emma Thompson. Tom Hanks was great as Walt Disney. But Travers is very diffcult to work with. she stated that she does not want singing or animation in the movie and that where the film gets real good. The novel was drawn from her own childhood and she faces the same sort of thing as the characters in the movie. I find the movie good and I hope Thompson gets an Oscar nomination for best Actress. This movie will teach us on how to make and movie and how the inspiration of the film has come from. Next time "Mary Poppins" is shown on television, and when I watch it, I'll be thinking of the movie.

After seeing this movie, you will never watch Marry Poppins with the same feeling as you did before.

An exceptional movie on the background of Marry Poppins.

The flashbacks keep one in tune to the reality surrounding the fantasy of Marry Poppins.

Tom Hanks does an excellent job portraying Walt Disney.

Interesting, informative and funny! Stay through the credits to hear an actual recording of P. L. Travers with the Disney team. Good in the theater, but I don't think it would lose much if you wait for the DVD of it.

This movie was completely different than I pictured which I loved and wish I brought Kleenex with me. I think because men (from Mars) wouldn't enjoy it as much(just saying).
