Today, mom and I ventured to the Movie Tavern to catch Mary Poppins Returns. What an amazing movie! Running at 2.5 hours, Emily Blunt, Lin Manuel Miranda, and Angela Lansbery captured us with songs. Even the story line was well written and thought out, I liked the suspense, and how they modernized Mary Poppins a bit, but not too much. It stayed true to the original, but the original children were father and aunt to the children in Mary Poppins Returns. I would recommend it – the movie spread joy to mom and I, and it was definitely a joyful movie.

One thought on “Sunday Movie with Mom”
Hi, Jessica Marie!
I’ve been hearing good things about Mary Poppins Returns, dear friend, and I thank you for the review. I always appreciate when actors from an original film released decades ago land roles as older characters in a modern remake. It does my heart good to see the big bright smiles on the faces of you and your mom. MPR was 2.5 hours well spent and gives you something to discuss with each other for a long time to come.
I wish you a safe and happy week ahead, dear friend JM!
