Reviews


80
The Telegraph - David Gritten
It’s Thompson as the heroically unbiddable Travers who makes the most of it; her bravura performance effectively dominates the film.
80
Variety - Scott Foundas
It’s a bit square, never particularly surprising, yet very rich in its sense of creative people and their spirit of self-reinvention.
80
The Hollywood Reporter - Leslie Felperin
Taken strictly on its own terms, Saving Mr. Banks works exceedingly well as mainstream entertainment.
80
Empire - Helen O'Hara
This is not a simple story of an uptight English woman induced to loosen up by those freedom-lovin’ Yanks, but a delicate and brilliantly acted story of overcoming the past to embrace an uncertain future. Emma Thompson, in particular, is magic.
80
Time Out London - Cath Clarke
The whole thing goes down with a few bucketloads of sugar. What keeps it from becoming sticky schmaltz is Thompson, who plays Travers with wit and warmth, adding a spoonful of spoilt child to help the battleaxe go down.
