Mary Poppins Returns (out Jan 1) hasn’t improved on the original but director Rob Marshall has created something worthy to sit alongside. My mouth was sore from smiling so much and I was lured in by the songs and its nostalgic feel. There’s not a lot of nuance to the character but Emily Blunt is still wonderfully good in the title role. Grade: A-.
