Annual Christmas Movie

It has been a Christmas Day tradition for the last several years for Prof, Kiddo, and I to go to a matinee in the afternoon after the chaos of morning gifting and eating is through.  This year was no exception.  We just arrived back home from seeing, "Saving Mr. Banks."  It is a Disney production about the making of the 1964 movie, "Mary Poppins."  It was delightful.  Tom Hanks as Walt Disney is sure to get a nod from the Academy and so should Emma Thompson for her superb portrayal of P L Travers, author of the Mary Poppins books.  While this movie is rated "G" it is not a movie for children.  Not because there is anything untoward in it, but small children wouldn't "get" it, and would be bored.
But as adults, we were both captivated and entertained.  I would highly recommend it to anyone.

Glad you had a good time.

It's a good tradition, and with Hanks and Thompson, it's a pretty good bet that it would be a good flick. We always went to LOTR during the season and made it to The Hobbit last year. Smaug may have to wait until later in January, but maybe we'll sneak it in.
