REVIEW: Saving Mr Banks (John Lee Hancock - 2013)

This film works doubly as a portrait of a writer, and how she utilised the traumas of her childhood to create something unique and imaginative, and how these beloved tales made the transition from the page to the screen, nursed by Disney studios and personally supervised by Walt Disney himself. It is quite a story.
