MARY POPPINS RETURNS
2018, Walt Disney Studios, 130 min, Dir: Rob Marshall

Set in Depression-era London (when the books were originally written), this all-new musical and sequel follows the next generation of the Banks family and their practically perfect nanny. Michael (Ben Whishaw) is now a grown man with three children of his own and a temporary job with the same financial institution that employed his father. With the tough economic times and the recent death of Michael’s wife, the Banks home is in a constant state of chaos and the children are burdened with far too many adult responsibilities. Sending the already frazzled Michael into a further tailspin is the news that foreclosure proceedings have begun on the house. Fortunately, the wind begins to change as Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) enters their lives once again to take the Banks family on a series of whimsical adventures and bring life, love and laughter back into their home. Co-starring Julie Walters, Emily Mortimer, Colin Firth, Meryl Streep, Lin-Manuel Miranda and Dick Van Dyke.
