Mary Poppins Returns
As I watched the beginning of Mary Poppins Returns I realized that she's pretty darn pushy. I tried to watch this Mary Poppins movie without comparing it to the 1964 version. That was a struggle. First of all I will say, I loved Mary Poppins Returns.There are many references to the 1964 film, but I think this film stands alone just fine. Mary Poppins appears to help an adult Michael Banks keep his home. Interestingly, he is never looking for a nanny, Mary Poppins just shows up. The music is great, the set design is lovely and the performances really shine. I want to see it again and build a familiarity with the music. Well done.
