Saving Mr Banks is the story of Walt Disney trying to turn P.L. Travers’ Mary Poppins into a movie, but there’s more to it than just that…
According to Vulture.com, Saving Mr Banks leaves a lot out…
“In Saving Mr. Banks’ end credits, we hear some of the actual tape recordings of Travers’s contentious writing sessions with Disney and two of his most successful songwriters, Richard and Robert Sherman (played in the movie by Jason Schwartzman and B.J. Novak).
“Was she cantankerous? Hard to please? It sure seems like it!
“But the movie distorts or just plain leaves out some interesting facets of Travers’s life — omissions that would have created a deeper, more interesting depiction of Travers and would have made the Disney intellectual-property-gobbling machine a bit less sympathetic.”
