Synopsis

It's been many years since Mary Poppins visited Jane and Michael Banks and worked as their magical nanny. Now grown, Michael (Ben Whishaw) is a widower with three children: Annabel (Pixie Davies), John (Nathanael Saleh) and Georgie (Joel Dawson). When the bank is about to repossess his childhood home after he misses several payments, his sister Jane (Emily Mortimer) helps him search through their father's papers for the shares they own in the bank.

Meanwhile, as the children head off across the park to buy some groceries, Georgie plays with a kite that his father threw out. It nearly pulls him into the air, but he's saved by a lamplighter named Jack (Lin-Manuel Miranda). When the kite returns to the ground, Mary Poppins (Emily Blunt) is holding onto it and announces she's come to London to be the children's nanny.

  • 1 star "Horrible casting, horrible acting, horrible accents, horrible plot. Blunt is no Julie Andrews; Lin is no Dick Van Dyke. Original is practically perfect in every way. Could hardly sit through this stinker which never let you enter the fantasy because every line was delivered with an awkwardly shifting accent and incorrect facial gesture while the plot just copied the old plot exchanging lamplighters for chimney sweeps etc. Blunt is English and could not even deliver an English accent? Kids were good; Streep was good. For some reason the one star turned into 3; so I repeated my review. This is total crap B movie stuff. I could not let the three stand; guess I am averaging two now which is tolerable"
