What’s it about?
Based on the true story of Walt Disney pursuing P.L. Travers for the movie rights to her novel Mary Poppins. Except it’s not really about that.
What did we think?
Anthony Sherratt says: A truly and wonderful engaging story that warms the heart and moistens the eyes. Nominally the story is about Disney’s pursuit of Travers, but the actual story shows us the world that shaped the author. It’s this side of the movie – rich in characterisation and emotion – that lifts it above an ordinary movie to make it extraordinary. Incredible performances and a wonderful story shine through even the faint tint of Disney propaganda. Don’t miss it! And stay for the credits and some actual recordings of events.
