Competition: Win ‘Saving Mr. Banks’ on Blu-ray


Directed by John Lee Hancock

Available Now on Blu-ray and DVD

Saving Mr. Banks is directed by John Lee Hancock (The Blind Side) and stars two-time Academy Award-winner Emma Thompson (Sense and Sensibility, The Remains of the Day, Howards End) as the London-based author of Mary Poppins, P.L. Travers, and fellow double Oscar-winner Tom Hanks (Forrest Gump, Philadelphia) as Walt Disney.

They lead a stellar international supporting cast including Colin Farrell (In Bruges), Paul Giamatti (Sideways) and Ruth Wilson (Luther). The film boasts a number of other British filmmaking talents including producer Alison Owen (Jane Eyre, Elizabeth) and co-writer Kelly Marcel (who is writing the screenplay for the forthcoming Fifty Shades of Grey) with production companies Ruby Films and BBC Films.

Saving Mr. Banks is a poignant, sharply funny and moving story of personal journey and discovery, which reveals how P.L. Travers’ emotional connection to her characters and exhaustive apprehension to Walt Disney’s creative vision nearly dismantled the entire 20-year endeavour to transform a work of personal significance into one of the most endearing classic films in cinematic history.
