Went and saw this gem yesterday. Paid $6 each matinee price and loved it. I am a Disney fan and was especially appreciative of the bit of Disney lore that was shared during the movie. Stay through the credits. They show old black and whites of the premier and they play audio from some of the actual tapes that were made during script reviews. I know this was a dramatization but it is based on a true story, which made it even more appealing to me.
I agree that Hanks did a credible job as Walt Disney but I also thought all of the cast did an outstanding job. I had a hard time seeing a weak link in any of it. One of the few times I can say that about any movie. Great cast, great historical references, great Disney history and a very good story to start with. This is not a movie that needs the big screen but it is a movie that is worth the time to watch.
I would describe more about the plot here but I think the trailer does a good job of that without revealing too much.
