Movie tip: "Mary Poppins Returns"

Movie tip

Mary Poppins Returns

If you had been wishing there were more old-fashioned feel-good movies out there, your wish has been granted: “Mary Poppins Returns” is here. This spritely Rob Marshall-directed musical will light up your week. One of the keys to its success is finding the perfect person to embody Mary Poppins: Emily Blunt. She’s brusque but can’t hide her warmth, and her singing is sublime. It’s true that this sequel doesn’t have quite the magic as the original, and the songs aren’t as memorable, but the first film was a classic. “Mary Poppins Returns” is an absolute pleasure. Blunt’s husband, actor-director John Krasinski, called “Mary Poppins Returns” a “joy bomb.” He’s right.
