Saving Mr. Banks

Monday, January 13, 2014

DH and I saw this movie this afternoon and enjoyed it, but would warn people with young children not to expect this to be a children's movie, although it was made by Disney. It's a two-part story, switching between the work leading up to the production of the movie, and the childhood of the author. It includes alcoholism, a suicide attempt and the father's death from tuberculosis. Well done, but not for small children.

    This is on my list of movies to watch! Although it may not be for kids, adults are checking out the book Mary Poppins and reading it to their kids! Yippee!

    Mickey Mouse hasn't been the same since Walt passed on.

    Another movie I would like to see.
I think the last movie I saw in a theater was "The King's Speech"
I don't get out very much, do I.

    I love Emma Thompson. She came out on stage at the Golden Globes holding her shoes.
