(2018) (Emily Blunt, Ben Whishaw) (PG)
- QUICK TAKE:
- 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.
