I’d particularly recommend Philomena, Saving Mr. Banks, All Is Lost and Pixar’s The Blue Umbrella.

What's so interesting about this week's big cinema release and tomorrow's big DVD and Blu-ray?
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. […]
The London Film Festival gets another Tom Hanks European premiere and the New York Film Festival gets the world premiere of Spike Jonze's Her.
This poster sells us the idea that Disney casts Mickey as his shadow, Travers casts Mary Poppins as hers. It's not as clean a notion as you might think.
Tom Hanks stars as Walt Disney and Emma Thompson as PL Travers, the creator of Mary Poppins, in this new film from director John Lee Hancock.
We've seen on-set pap snaps and sneaks from inside the soundstages, but this seems to be the first official promotional image from the making-of-Mary Poppins movie.
A no-brainer bit of casting.
