Blu-ray Release: Saving Mr. Banks

March 18, 2014

Saving Mr. Banks Blu-ray CoverToday, Disney is releasing the wonderful Saving Mr. Banks on Blu-ray & DVD, one of the best movies of last year.  Brilliantly depicting the struggle that Walt Disney (Tom Hanks) faced when trying to convince author P.L. Travers (Emma Thompson) to sign over the film rights to Mary Poppins, this is a moving and entertaining film that provides a beautiful look at the deeply personal elements every writer puts into their work.

We all loved Saving Mr. Banks when we reviewed the film in theatres this past December, and our glowing consensus was:

“Fronted by brilliant acting from Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks, with an excellent supporting cast and beautiful screenplay, Saving Mr. Banks is an entertaining and moving film that pays tribute to the legacy of Mary Poppins.  **** (Out of 4)”

The Blu-ray includes deleted scenes and a “behind the scenes” featurette, as well as a video of the cast and crew performing “Let’s Go Fly a Kite” in tribute to composer Richard Sherman.

Saving Mr. Banks is 125 minutes and rated PG.
