MARY POPPINS RETURNS (U) – Friday 15th February 6:00pm
£4 and £3 Tickets from Tarvin PO
That wonderful nanny we all wish we had as a child is back.
Based on the book series Mary Poppins by P. L. Travers, the film is a sequel to the 1964 film Mary Poppins, and stars Emily Blunt as the eponymous character with Lin-Manuel Miranda, Ben Whishaw, Emily Mortimer, Julie Walters, Dick Van Dyke, Angela Lansbury, Colin Firth, and Meryl Streep in supporting roles. Set in 1930s London, twenty-five years after the events of the original film.
Now an adult with three children, bank teller Michael Banks learns that his house will be repossessed in five days unless he can pay back a loan. His only hope is to find a missing certificate that shows proof of valuable shares that his father left him years earlier. Just as all seems lost, Michael and his sister receive the surprise of a lifetime when Mary Poppins — the beloved nanny from their childhood — arrives to save the day and take the Banks family on a magical, fun-filled adventure.
The film has received generally positive reviews from critics, and it also received four Academy Award nominations for Best Original Score, Best Original Song (“The Place Where Lost Things Go”), Best Production Design, and Best Costume Design at the 91st Academy Awards.
