Three sentence movie reviews: Saving Mr. Banks
I’m going to spend the first sentence of three telling you that I thought the soundtrack was incredibly intrusive, subtracting a lot from what was otherwise a good picture. That said, this is a very good movie, with Emma Thompson hitting it out of the park as the uptight, persnickety P.L. Travers. The supporting cast is also very good,* and the costumes are particularly of good quality.
Where watched: Regal Tigard Stadium 12 with Mom and Aunt Carol
*Colin Ferrell is in particularly good form and the Edwardian fashions suit him quite well.
**I loved Travers’ form-fitting and structured wool dresses, set against breezy LA style. The dark green one with the fitted waist and buttons was my favorite, but oh, the camel coat with blue lining she wore near the end? I covet that tremendously.
