AFTER the flatness felt after Christmas, an excellent antidote I would recommend is to go and see the new Mary Poppins film.
If you haven’t any youngsters to take you will still enjoy it. We took our granddaughter, aged seven, but all three of us loved it.
The London scenes are amazing and there is a wonderful dance sequence with dozens of lamplighters. There is a very poignant song, Where the Lost Things Go, and the effects, lighting and scenery are brilliant. Emily Blunt is superb as Mary. The only part I thought superfluous was the cameo role of Meryl Streep, a bit like Cher in Mamma Mia! Apart from that, it is a super ‘feelgood’ film and I would recommend it.
RECOMMENDED: Emily Blunt, star of the film Mary Poppins Returns.
