"Mary Poppins" is a screen classic, but Walt Disney’s dealings with novelist P.L. Travers in getting the movie rights to the story weren’t nearly as genial.
This enjoyable behind-the-scenes story draws fine performances from Tom Hanks as entertainment legend Disney and Emma Thompson as the difficult Travers, who had deeply personal reasons for being so protective of her material, explained in flashbacks that feature Colin Farrell as her father. Director John Lee Hancock’s ("The Blind Side") cast also includes Paul Giamatti, Jason Schwartzman, Bradley Whitford and Rachel Griffiths. DVD extras: deleted scenes. *** (PG-13: AS) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
