Art in the Form of Film: Saving Mr. Banks (2013)
December 15, 5:45 pm - 9:00 pm
Date: Friday, December 15, 5:45-9pm
If ever you wondered who could have conjured up such a magical nanny as Mary Poppins, you will find the heartbreaking reason why in Saving Mr. Banks. We also learn how very close Mary Poppins (1964), one of Disney’s most endearing favorites, came to never being made. Tom Hanks plays Walt and Emma Thompson is the persnickety author who opposes, for personal reasons, the inclusion of any whimsical music or animation in the story. Instructor Paul Marino will introduce the film, raise questions to ponder and host a post-viewing discussion. Presented and sponsored by Cindy and Paul Marino
Fee: $10 includes glass of wine or bottle of beer.
