Special Screens: Mary Poppins Returns
Mary Poppins returns to check on the progress of children in a much harsher adult world.
Poppins’ charge Michael Banks is a widower bringing up three children of his own, and still relying on older sister Jane. Grieving the loss of his beloved wife, Michael has neglected his finances and the bank is on the verge of repossessing the family home. But Mary Poppins is on hand to save the day.
Nominated for four Oscar®s, four Golden Globes and three BAFTAs.
