“Mary Pop­pins Re­turns”

Dis­ney

Variety - - Contenders -

An Amer­i­can writ­ing about 1930s Bri­tain, screen­writer David Magee got a les­son on how those across the pond han­dled the stock mar­ket crash. First off: they called it The Great Slump. Sec­ond: while many had jobs, they were not nec­es­sar­ily mak­ing enough to af­ford their mort­gage, just like the fam­ily in the movie. Then there are the leeries, or lamp lighters, led on screen by Lin-manuel Mi­randa’s Jack. Magee says this is a Scot­tish term, “but it was such an easy, fun word to say” that they kept it in the script.
