In Depression-era London, a now-grown Jane (Emily Mortimer) and Michael Banks (Ben Whishaw), along with Michael's three children, are visited by the enigmatic Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) following a personal loss. Through her unique magical skills, and with the aid of her friend Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda), she helps the family rediscover the joy and wonder missing in their lives.Written by
I am 43 and as a Generation X'er, I am skeptical by nature and am normally not inclined to introducing new actors into iconic roles. I loved Julie Andrews as Mary Poppins and now, Emily Blunt has made me fall in love with Mary Poppins all over again!!! When we left the theater, my husband and I felt like we had just left the Magic Kingdom - it is a magical movie experience! Worth every dollar to see on the big screen!! I couldn't be more pleased with Mary Poppins Returns. She is "practically perfect in every way". Emily Blunt has stage presence, the songs are pleasing and the story is extremely touching. (I watched Saving Mr. Banks and for those who don't get why Mary Poppins came back, missed the entire point of Mary Poppins, Saving Mr.Banks and Mary Poppins Returns.) We all need a Mary Poppins moment to remind us of what truly matters in life. So if you want to Trip a Little Light Fantastic, find out Where the Lost Things Go, and be reminded with a childlike heart There is Nowhere to Go But Up, then please see this movie and feel the magic!
