Travers travels from London to Hollywood in 1961 to finally discuss Walt Disney’s desire to bring her beloved character, Mary Poppins, to the motion picture screen (a quest he began in the 1940s as a promise to his two daughters), Disney meets a prim, uncompromising sexagenarian not only suspect of the impresario’s concept for the film, but a woman struggling with her own past. During her stay in California, Travers reflects back on her difficult childhood in 1906 Australia. “...Disney’s backstage drama about how its whimsical 1964 kids’classic Mary Poppins came to be is a delight.” - Entertainment Weekly (Rated PG-13, 2hr .5min )

But as the Monuments Men, as they were called, found themselves in a race against time, they would risk their lives to protect mankind’s greatest achievements. “...a worthy theme and plenty of things to reward adult moviegoers.”- New York Post (Rated PG-13, 1 hr. 58 min.)
