LAST MOVIE UNTIL FALL!
SAVING MR. BANKS
"Saving Mr. Disney: A Lesbian Perspective" Carolyn Gage (in her blog) says: " ... a film about a powerful, visionary, immanently reasonable lesbian (P.L. Travers) fighting off an evil army of propagandists who are hell-bent on breaking the spirit of one of the greatest lesbian archetypes ever set on paper (Poppins)… a liberator of children, a goddess to the natural world, a harbinger of a new order in the wake of the collapse of capitalism. I invite you to imagine and inhabit that scenario, because, sisters, I promise you that it is the real story."
The Feminist Spectator reports: "People don’t like her (P.L. Travers) and she knows it, but she doesn’t care. She’s a starchy, vital, piercingly smart woman in 1961, when women were supposed to be pliable and sweet. Here a man (Disney) and a woman develop a relationship that isn’t romantic, but that’s based on commerce, creativity, and eventually, mutual respect."
This is the extraordinary, untold story of how the Disney classic "Mary Poppins" made it to the screen and the testy relationship that the legendary Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) had with author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) that almost derailed it.
