When Walt Disney’s daughters begged him to make a movie of their favorite book, P. Travers’ “Mary Poppins,” he made them a promise – one that he didn’t realize would take 20 years to keep. In his quest to obtain the rights, Walt comes up against a curmudgeonly, uncompromising writer who has absolutely no intention of letting her beloved magical nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. But, as the books stop selling and money grows short, Travers reluctantly agrees to go to Los Angeles to hear Disney’s plans for the adaptation. For those two short weeks in , Walt Disney pulls out all the stops. Armed with imaginative storyboards and chirpy songs from the talented Sherman brothers, Walt launches an all-out onslaught on P. Travers, but the prickly author doesn’t budge. He soon begins to watch helplessly as Travers becomes increasingly immovable and the rights begin to move further away from his grasp.

Kernel Rating out of 5 :. It’s a film about the author of the “Mary Poppins” books, so audiences will have to be aware of that Julie Andrews-starring classic; otherwise, you’ll be lost. The film includes tough emotional content, including an alcoholic father, a parent considering killing herself, some kissing, a corpse, and some mild cursing. It might confuse and bore children younger than teenagers, because the “Mary Poppins”-related content isn’t prevalent at all.

The Mary Poppins tales sprang from Travers entertaining young visitors, combined with a love of mythology. The Disney film Mary Poppins made the notoriously private and prickly Travers immensely wealthy, but also unhappy.

Travers Emma Thompson. The British Travers is taken aback by the brash, bold American Disney though eventually she agrees to the film but insists on editorial control that causes no ends of problems for Disney from the very beginning when she talks about no animation and no songs she also did not approve of the casting. Disney realizes Travers will not be easily convinced so goes on a campaign to do just that including a personalized tour of Disneyland.
He comes to understand what the story is about Mary Poppins, does not, of course, come to save the children, she comes to save Mr Banks and she comes to understand what Disney is about, unearthing painful memories of her childhood. An amazing performance by both Hanks and Thompson that really evoke the powerful characters of Disney and Travers. It is amazing to watch these two very different people trying, and forced, to understand each other to achieve their goals. The look of the film evokes the time period very well at the height of the Disney empire of California in the early s.
There is no doubt this film is about the two characters with every frame of the film focusing on one or both evoking very much both on the strength of their characters but also, touchingly, their deep humanity. Both are forced to open up before their conflict can be resolved. These were real people and while this film no doubt exaggerates the story it really sheds a great deal of insight on an iconic film and a difficult author devoted to her precious Mary Poppins. A touching and moving film of the drama behind the classic Mary Poppins film.
No doubt you will leave with a bit of a tear in your eye…. Directed by: John Lee Hancock.
