Last Friday Disney released Saving Mr. Banks, a film based on the true story of the author of Mary Poppins, P.L. Travers’ life and the development of the film in the 1960’s. I must admit that although I am a huge fan of Mary Poppins and have seen the film multiple times, I have never bothered to look further into its history. I had no idea it was a book series – I know, I know, allowing movies to dominate my pop culture lexicon over literature – bad. Anyhow, I highly recommend you see this film for three reasons:
Winter must be cold for those with no warm memories… and those who have never seen Sleepless in Seattle, my all time favorite romantic movie. It was the first rom-com I ever saw that did not make me want to slap both characters for being such stereotypical idiots and for that it holds a special place in my heart. It’s hard to narrow down just five reasons this one is my favorite, but I did my best for this week’s five reasons.
