'Saving Mr. Banks' in Tuckerton
With stars Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks, "Saving Mr. Banks," rated PG-13, will be screened tonight at the Ocean County Library's Tuckerton branch.
The picture is the story of how Disney's "Mary Poppins" made it to the screen and the testy relationship between the legendary Walt Disney (Hanks) and the author P.L. Travers (Thompson) that almost derailed it. For her work in the film, Thompson received a Golden Globe nomination for best performance by an actress in a motion picture - drama. Thompson also was nominated for a Screen Actors Guild Award, a Broadcast Film Critics Association Award and a BAFTA, which is the British equivalent of an Oscar nomination.
