Double Oscar winners Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson battle words and wits in this extraordinary, untold backstory of how Disney’s classic Mary Poppins made it to the screen. Walt Disney (Hanks) promised his daughters he’d adapt their favorite book, never realizing it would take nearly 20 years. Immune to the Disney magic and charm, prickly author P.L. Travers (a spot-on Thompson) has no intention of letting her beloved nanny get mauled by the Hollywood machine. D: John Lee Hancock, US, 2013, 125m
