Tom Hanks, Emma Thompson, Colin Farrell and Ruth Wilson joined Director John Lee Hancock and Producer Alison Owen for the Saving Mr. Banks Press Conference on 20th October 2013. Film-Reviews.net is delighted to present it to you here in full from the 57th BFI London Film Festival, where the film had the closing gala.
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 twenty-year endeavour to transform a work of personal significance into one of the most endearing classic films in cinematic history. The film is directed by John Lee Hancock, produced by Alison Owen, Ian Collie and Philip Steuer, and written by Kelly Marcel and Sue Smith. The film is scheduled for release by Walt Disney Studios in UK cinemas 29 November 2013.
