London: Irish actor Colin Farrell was moved to tears while watching his film `Saving Mr Banks`.

The 37-year-old actor stars alongside Emma Thompson and Tom Hanks in the movie about how Disney classic Mary Poppins was adapted for the big screen, reported Contactmusic.

Farrell says Thompson`s performance as Mary Poppins author P L Travers was so moving that he could not help shedding a tear when he watched a screening of the movie.

"I did too and I`m in it, so how pathetic is that? I think Emma Thompson just rips you from one side of the room to the other emotionally; there`s something particularly raw about what she does in this," Farrell said.
