Facing a painful past

I enjoyed watching Saving Mr. Banks. It was much more emotionally intense than I expected. The movie claims to chronicle Walt Disney persuading author P.L. Travers to agree to the making of the movie, Mary Poppins, which is based on Travers' novel. The movie continually flashes back to scenes of her painful childhood. The movie is quite redemptive as Travers comes to terms with the past, forgiving herself and her father, and moving on. It seems this is not what actually happened historically but it terms of cinema is a great movie, with a strongly redemptive message.
