Mary Poppins is an odd children's film. You may remember the bubbly songs, Julie Andrews' relentless cheeriness and Dick Van Dyke's horrendous Cockney accent, but do you remember how long it is? (139 minutes!) Or how disturbingly dysfunctional the Banks family appears? And how old Mr. and Mrs. Banks appeared to be (the actors were in their 40s)? Saving Mr. Banks is both a celebration and an explication of the film's dark magic. But it is most decidedly the Disney version. With Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson.
