Saving Mr. Banks (2013)

Author P.L. Travers reflects on her childhood after reluctantly meeting with Walk Disney, who seeks to adapt her Mary Poppins books for the big screen. [imdb]

Nominated for 1 Oscar:
Best Original Score

It so happens that most of the times a film made from the so-well-known Hollywood structure doesn't really work out for me. This is a film with not enough depth, and when it does exist, it's only in Emma's performance - which is not some kind of treasure, but it's a fine effort, and the best in the film.

Hanks was fine, Colin and everything connected to the flashbacks not so much. It needed better writing, better directing. The original score is not that good either, by Thomas Newman standards.

My rating for the film: 6/10.
