This movie, coming to theaters on the 29th of this month, has a cast of some of the best actors currently working. Emma Thompson plays the author of Mary Poppins, P.L. Travers and Tom Hanks as Walt Disney, as well as Paul Giamatti and Bradley Whitford, BJ Novak and Jason Schwartzman as the Sherman Brothers and Ruth Wilson, Colin Farrell and Rachel Griffiths as Travers’ mother, father and nanny in flashback scenes. This movie has the smell of Disney-fying on it; both Disney and Travers’ life were full of many things that wouldn’t fit into a heart warming biopic like this. When you watch these kind of biographies, you have to see them more as ‘inspired by true events’ than actual truth, but this is the essence of films in general. Movies are fantasy, events shifted and changed to suit a certain narrative. The main point of this movie is a celebration of the spirit behind the Mary Poppins character and the movie that, thanks to the combined efforts of the people portrayed in the film as well as Julie Andrews and Dick Van Dyke, ended up being an iconic classic. All that being said, the squee-inducing sight of Jason Schwartzman singing Supercalifragilisticexpialidocious and Ruth Wilson in period costume and Emma Thompson vs Tom Hanks is almost too much to handle.
Super excited for this one
