Now an adult with three children, bank teller Michael Banks learns that his house will be repossessed in five days unless he can pay back a loan. His only hope is to find a missing certificate that shows proof of valuable shares that his father left him years earlier. Just as all seems lost, Michael and his sister receive the surprise of a lifetime when Mary Poppins--the beloved nanny from their childhood--arrives to save the day and take the Banks family on a magical, fun-filled adventure.

I took my six and eight year old boys to see it at the cinema and they got restless - it's long. But afterwards they asked questions about the Mum who'd died and we talked about loss and grief in terms of the film - the film handles it so well. And we love the songs. Had them on in the car and when we watched the dvd with sing-a-long on we were all singing. It's terrific.
Emily Blunt has a commendable crack at Mary, but Lin-Manuel's Jack continues the head scratching policy of putting an American actor into a true-blue cockney role and, great actor he is in other things, his character lacks any kind of spark here. Dick may have sounded comical but his charisma made up for it. Routines and songs are enjoyable enough and the story is sufficiently interesting.
As for the 4K technical specs, I found the picture to be one of the least impressive of the 4k's I've watched so far. Probably still the best way to watch it, but don't expect to be blown away by the picture or sound, although they're good enough.
So overall, not a bad film and not a bad presentation, but weighed down by the past and an average technical presentation.
