Monday at the Movies

Like a lot of lonely little girls from dysfunctional families, I longed for a Mary Poppins to show up and fix things.  I read all of the books.  But somehow, I never knew this backstory of her author.  This movie starts slowly, but is entirely worth the effort.  Tom Hanks even makes me like the idea of Walt Disney, whom I generally consider an evil villain.

  1. I really liked this movie. Someone said – as usual with Disney films – they fudged a good bit, especially the scene where Disney tells her about his own pathetic childhood, but I really liked the Sherman Brothers!

  2. Yep, it’s a cute feel-good story alright, but just another ‘disneyfication’ of how it all really did happen.
