|"Saving Mr. Banks," starring Tom Hanks and Emma Thompson, opens AFI Fest.|
The story centers on Walt Disney (Hanks) and his quest to talk Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers (Thompson) into turning her book into that now-famous film.
And while AFI Fest (Nov. 7-14) is known for its edgy offerings, Saving Mr. Banks isn't the only film on the lineup that could also work for families—or parents who are interested in thought-provoking pics about that fascinating challenge we call parenting.
Here's a quick rundown of highlights from the festival (descriptions are from the festival site). For those interested in attending, tickets are free and can be found online here. The films will be playing at the TCL Chinese Theater, Chinese 6 Theaters and the Egyptian Theater in Hollywood.
