I was rather surprised just how irresistible Saving Mr. Banks proved to be. The cast are splendid, the production design and cinematography are polished and unobtrusive, but the two real stars of the show are Kelly Marcel, the screenwriter, and Mary Poppins, the feature film.
This featurette… says very little about either of these things. But I'm telling you now, if you were sceptical about this film before, it's time to start looking forward to it now. I was really rather disarmed by Saving Mr. Banks and I honestly can't wait to see it again.
Saving Mr. Banks is released on November 29th in the UK and on December 20th in the US.
