Musical: A magical nanny shows up once again to help a family in need.
It's the time of The Great Slump in London and recently widowed artist, Michael Banks (BEN WHISHAW), has had to take a job as a bank teller in order to support his kids, Anabel (PIXIE DAVIES), John (NATHANAEL SALEH), and Georgie (JOEL DAWSON), and pay for his housekeeper, Ellen (JULIE WALTERS).

Yet, Michael's new job hasn't prevented bank president Wilkins (COLIN FIRTH) -- who's only motivated by profit -- to send his two debt collectors, Gooding (JEREMY SWIFT) and Frye (KOBNA HOLDBROOK-SMITH) -- to serve Michael a foreclosure notice on the house where he grew up with his sister, Jane (EMILY MORTIMER).

It seems he's three months late on a loan taken out against his mortgage and if he can't pay the entire mortgage back in full in five days, the bank will take the house. Fortunately for the Banks family, help arrives from above in the form of Mary Poppins (EMILY BLUNT), a nanny who once cared for Michael and Jane when they were young and has arrived to do the same now for Michael's children.

With help from street light illuminator Jack (LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA) -- who also knew the nanny when he was a child -- and her fix-anything cousin, Topsy (MERYL STREEP), Mary Poppins sets out to teach the Banks children important life lessons, all while helping their father keep his house.

It's a good bet many will.
For some mild thematic elements and brief action.

I have subscribed to ScreenIt for more than a decade. I check in every week to take advantage of their amazing services. Not only does their site provide a glimpse of exactly what content a movie offers, I've found the “Our Take” reviews and ratings for each movie to be right on the money every single time. I've referred dozens of friends to this service because my #1 resource for deciding whether or not to show a movie to my kids, or to see one myself, is ScreenIt.com!

I signed up to get Screen It weekly reviews a long time ago, when my kids were young and I wanted to know more about movies before we went to a theater or rented. Now one child is in law school, other in undergraduate, and I still read the weekly Screen Its! It helps me know what my husband and I want to see or rent, and what to have waiting at home that we all will enjoy when my "kids" come home. I depend on Screen It reviews. They usually just present the facts and let me decide if the movie is appropriate or of interest for my family and me. Thank you for providing that service, Screen It!

I have 4 children who are now in college. I signed up for Screen It when my children were pre-teenagers. Often my children would ask to see a movie with a friend and I wished I could preview the movie prior to giving permission. A friend told me about ScreenIt.com and I found it to be the next best thing to previewing a movie. The amount of violence, sexual content, or language were always concerns for me and my husband as we raised innocent kids with morals. We constantly fought the peer pressure our kids received to see films that in our opinion were questionable. With the evidence we received at Screen It, our kids couldn't even fight us when we felt a film may have been inappropriate for them to watch. Thank you, Screen It. Continue to make this helpful service available to everyone, but especially the young parents.

Screenit.com is an amazing resource for parents, educators, church groups or anyone who wants to make an informed decision whether a movie is suitable for their viewing. The reviews and content descriptions are so detailed I am mystified how the reviewers can put them together.

I love screen It! I don't know what I would do without it. It is well worth the membership. Before we take our son to the movies we check it out on screen it first. Thank you SO much for making it. Keep up the good work & keep 'em coming!!!
