A richly comic and moving tale of fathers and sons across generations, The Life I Lead fills in the blanks behind a very well-known face. Best remembered for playing Mr Banks in Disney’s classic film Mary Poppins, David Tomlinson was renowned for playing the classic English gent – forthright, proper and a loveable fool. His meeting with Walt Disney came to encapsulate his incredible life full of adventure and heartbreak. The man who portrayed one of cinema’s most famous patriarchs was defined by his relationship with his own father – a remote eccentric, who has hiding an extraordinary tragicomic secret. The Life I Lead sees Miles Jupp (Mock the Week, The Durrells), one of Britain’s leading comic actors, bring David Tomlinson’s remarkable story to life.
