Saving Mr. Banks

I recently saw the movie Saving Mr. Banks. It was very enjoyable, and at times profoundly moving. I appreciated the words that were attributed to Walt Disney, about the role of those who tell stories in not merely preserving memories but recasting the world: “That’s what we storytellers do, we restore order through imagination.”

Of related interest, Hemant Mehta blogged about the lack of mention of God in Disney films.
