Saving Mr. Banks: Best Movie for Grownups Who Refuse to Grow Up?

Yes there are millions of grownups who have refused to grow up. And majority of them are the Baby Boomers and the Generation X!

Why is the 2013 American-Australian-British historical comedy-drama "Saving Mr. Banks" directed by John Lee Hancock rated as the best movie for grownups who refuse to grow up? That is the award the film won at the 13th annual AARP Magazine's Movies for Grownups Awards.

It is based on the 1964 Walt Disney Studios film "Mary Poppins" with Tom Hanks playing the role of Walt Disney. So, it is naturally a film for Baby Boomers and as we all know baby boomers have the Peter Pan Syndrome, as they want to remain ever young as they were when they were the bohemian hippies of Flower Power movement, fanatics of Beatlemania and Rock and Roll.
Baby boomers don't really want to accept old age and retirement, and in fact compete with the Generation X and the Generation X is competing with the Millennials on Facebook, Twitter and other popular trends of the new millennium.
