The best thing about this movie, aside from the fact that it has a powerhouse cast (Colin Farrell is one of my favorites), is that we get to see a look of one of the major clamors in the film industry, which is adaptation of books.

So what if a few liberties were taken with the story (pretty much the fact on any "based on a true story" film - some more than others), this is a sweet and yet not too overly-sentimental look at how Mary Poppins (let's face it, still the best live-action Disney movie) came to be. Emma Thompson is wonderful as the quite uptight author P.L. Travers and Tom Hanks is likewise the perfect Walt Disney. I especially liked the trio of Jason Schwartzman, B.J. Novak and Bradley Whitford playing the songwriting Sherman brothers and the beleaguered script writer Don DaGradi. The music was great, the story (between flashbacks and current time) was well thought-out and planned and, in the end, it makes you smile and maybe brings a tear to your eye.

I went to see this movie expecting it to be a mostly hyped up too sappy Disney-fied money maker, but I was so surprised at how good it was. It was very adult and honest (especially when compared to other recent live action Disney flicks...) I actually cried more than once while watching it. Even if all of the events in the movie weren't exactly accurate, you could tell that the filmmakers were trying to do justice to P.L. Travers while also creating a compelling story.

This movie is a mix feeling for me because the movie has it's happy and Sad sense. the movie is powerful and reminds me of Hitchcock the 2012 movie from last year.
