It starts when people are telling Mrs. Travers to go meet with Walt Disney and listen to his idea for making a movie about her book Mary Poppins. She doesn't want to go but she really needs money and he is going to give her a bunch of money. She decides to hear his ideas and agreed to make the movie but records everything. She is very hard to work with and makes everyone crazy. She doesn't like most of their ideas and gives them a hard time. She is not happy for most of the movie. There are a bunch of flashbacks to when she was a little girl and the movie tells the story of her past. Mrs. Travers is very negative to Walt Disney and doesn't ever smile until he forces her to go to Disneyland and ride a ride. She does finally smile on the ride. She meets with the team from the movie to hear the song they wrote for the end of Mary Poppins. She loves it and is singing and dancing with them. Everyone is happy. She stays happy until she finds out the are going to add animation of the penguins in the movie. She is so angry she goes all the way back home to England. Walt Disney shows up at her house and tells her a story about himself and then tells her he knows why she wrote Mary Poppins. It makes her agree to sign the rights over to him and he makes the movie.
Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson are very good in this movie. I don't like why the story of Mary Poppins was written because it was very sad.
4 1/2 stars
This is one of my favorite new movies. I got to see it again today and liked it even more. If you didn't see it yet you need to go see it. It is a good movie and you will like it.
