Paul Giamatti – Saving Mr. Banks

Ralph is very kind and somehow befriends the impossible Mary Poppins author P.L. Travers.

He is a great actor, even just as a driver in a supporting role and the scene in which the two greet each other at the airport is very emotional and delicate.

He dedicates his time looking after her, bringing her coffee, brushing down her robes before a trip, keeping her up to date with everything that happens, opening the car door for her, announcing the presence of Adam, who followed her, during a business dinner.

He is always there but keeps a safe distance, without bothering her, he is so devoted to this important woman and his world revolves around the desire to always be impeccable and loyal to her.

Their relationship is hierarchical and Watkins is really comfortable in the role he plays, it seems that he has been a clerk all his life.
